Seahorse

Hi! Well I’m back from a very very long unnecessary break… but i just received a very big wake up call and so I’d like to start off this year with something good. So I’m going to get right into it!

2) Seahorses live in reasonable shallow areas that have plant life, but during Winter they move to deeper water to escape the harsh conditions

3) Unlike other animal species where the female gives birth , male seahorses are actually the ones who reproduce

4) The seahorses latin name is Hippocampus which means sea caterpillar

5) Some seahorses can change colour to blend in with there surroundings

Hope you enjoyed!
