Here's how to prepare a sea urchin or cucumber in a survival situation.

So here's the scenario: you're lost or shipwrecked somewhere on a beach and find yourself incredibly hungry and in need of some food for energy. What do you do?

Well, in this case, you can try making a meal from a sea urchin or a sea cucumber. Thankfully, YouTube survival guru Survival Lilly is here to show us how to safely prepare these for human consumption.

The sea urchin and sea cucumbers don't exactly look like a gourmet meal. It also has us wondering who the first human was to pluck these creatures off the sea floor and think they looked tasty enough to eat?

But in a desperate situation, beggars can't be choosers. Let's just hope we never find ourselves stranded on a beach talking to a face drawn on a volleyball and having to prepare these creatures as a meal on a regular basis.

However, at least now we know how to cut one up if we ever needed to. Better to know and never need the information than to not know at all!
