Leafy seahorse


Leafy seahorse

There are many seahorse species in the Underwater world. Did you know that a seahorse can look with one eye to the front while the other monitors its back and it moves its backbone 35 times per second? Moreover the pregnancy is carried by the male - the embryo is given to his pocket and upon birth of that egg he gets another one. What you see on the picture is a beautiful leafy seahorse example. We have never seen anything like that before. You could fool yourself and think it is a branch rather than an animal.
