Breeding starts in April and most of the individuals have reproduced before July. Scott is also an avid diver, underwater photographer, and budding marine biologist, having created the online guide to the underwater flora and fauna of Southern California. Both of these organisms belong to the class Echinoidea along with sea urchins.

[147] The earliest animals were marine invertebrates, that is, vertebrates came later. Likewise, the Georgia Aquarium's Bossart recently discovered that endangered Antillean manatees in Puerto Rico carry Toxoplasma—the first evidence of the parasite in any sirenian, the animal group that includes manatees and dugongs.
