All the collectibles in Prehistoric Kelp Forest

Prehistoric Kelp Forest is one of the shortest levels in The Cosmic Shake, and it has the lowest collectible count of them all. You will be on the lookout for 11 items consisting of four Gold Coins, five hot objects for Sandy, Spot, and a Golden Spatula. You will need to have access to the Reef Sweeper to obtain one of the Gold Coins, so you will not be able to collect everything in Prehistoric Kelp Forest until you unlock that ability at the end of the game. 

Hot Object #1 – The first collectible is a hot object that can be collected as you run away from the rockslide at the beginning of the level. It is on your left.

Golden Spatula – After the Algae Jungle checkpoint, you will find yourself in a cavern with jump pads spaced out for you to hop across. The Golden Spatula is on one of the pads to the left.

Gold Coin #1 – When you pass through the cavern that housed the last collectible, you will be in an area with a giant log in the lava below. Platform to the top of the area, and jump down into the log to find a bubble surfboard course. When completed, it will reward you with the first Gold Coin of the level.

Gold Coin #2 – After you shock the sleeping dorudon in the story, you will jump up to a higher platform. There is a hook near that platform with a button that activates a Reef Sweeper challenge. You will need to glide around the area, and use the Reef Sweeper to suck up the jellyfish. Use the jellyfish to take out the wall at the starting area to obtain the second Gold Coin. 

Hot Object #2 – When you are on the volcano slide, keep watch for a path preceded by a hook. Use the hook, and follow that path to collect the second hot object.

Gold Coin #3 – Right before the end of the volcano slide, there is a jump pad on the right. Use it, and follow the path to find the third Gold Coin.

Hot Object #3 – In the lava cave, there is a section where you will be jumping between moving platforms over some lava. You will see a hot object in the middle lane, but be careful of the erupting lava plumes.

Hot Object #4 – After the previous section, there is a pool of lava with a boulder you will roll. Take the ramp ahead of you to find the fourth hot object.

Hot Object #5 – Ahead of the previous collectible, while you are still rolling the boulder, there will be a plume of lava rising out of the middle of a section. Roll on top of the plume while it is down to collect the last hot object.

Spot – Just before the boss fight, you need to complete a puzzle in the cave painting cave. Before completing it, turn around to find where Spot is hiding. 

Gold Coin #4 – There is a chair with a heart on it in the cave painting cave. Walk around the back of it to find the last Gold Coin of the level.
