Facts About Seahorse
Seahorses vary in color: usually, they are light – or half-brown, decorated with many white spots. The seahorse has a sturdy dorsal fin. If its fins are damaged, they recover exceptionally quickly.
Seahorses prefer to be in shallow coastal waters where they can be found between seaweed and eelgrass. Their dorsal fin moves back and forth 35 times a second. The head of the seahorse serves as a steering wheel.
When the head goes to the right, the seahorse also goes to the right. If the head goes to the left, they go to the left. With his tail, he can cling to something. This way, it can catch food in the current.
Seahorses eat all small swimming creatures like little crustaceans, but also fish larvae. They have no teeth so that they can suck their food from a distance of 3 cm.
Seahorses have different reproduction. The female gives the eggs to the male, and there could be 200 of them. The male keeps them in the pouch wherever they’re born. So the male gives birth to the small seahorses.
After this event, the male is often totally exhausted and usually dies. The baby seahorse looks like an adult, only much smaller.
