Fun Facts

  • Seahorses can move their eyes independently of each other.
  • Seahorses are one of the only animals in the world in which the male carries the unborn young.
  • Seahorses do not have scales as other fish do. The skin is stretched over bony armor that is arranged in rings.
  • A prehensile tail helps the fish to anchor itself in hiding places or good places to feed.
