Seahorses are a type of small fish that have armored plates all over their body (they don’t have scales). There are about 50 different species of seahorses around the world. They live in seaweed beds in warm water and are very slow swimmers. Seahorses can change their colour to camouflage themselves in order to hide from enemies.

Seahorses have the head of a horse, the tail of a monkey and it’s the male who has the babies!!


The female seahorse produces eggs, but they are held inside the male’s body until they hatch; he is pregnant for about 40 to 50 days. The seahorse is the only animal in which the father is pregnant.
