Wildlife spotlight: Seahorse

Because of their body shape, seahorses are rather slow swimmers. They propel themselves by using a small fin on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second. To remain in place, they anchor themselves to sea grasses and coral.


Genus

Hippocampus


Habitat

Shallow tropical and temperate waters


Threats

Accidental capture by fishing gear and habitat degradation


Interesting info

Unlike most other fish, seahorses mate for life. They are also among the only animal species whose males become pregnant.
