This is a turretfish.
It has a bony exoskeleton, free moving fins and tail.
Its body is covered with stars tightly packed.
Waves wash the turretfish onto the tideline. They dry and harden in the sun.
It has very very sharp and pointy dorsal spines, a fact you may consider when removing one embedded in your foot.
Sharper than a bindii.
