Fossil Echinoid Urchin Spines by the Bag - Ancient Earth Science!
Echinoids have populated the seas since the times long before dinosaurs, and have existed from 450 million years ago all the way to the present day. Forebears of creatures like the modern-day Sea Urchin, they were covered in the same delicate (but protective) spines. In death, the spines of Echinoids were covered in sediment at the sea floor, slowly hardening over millions of years into the fossils you see here.
These specimens are from Florida.
