The tail of the seahorse is used to wrap around objects, such as seaweed, to anchor itself down. The seahorse is the slowest moving marine fish, making them prey to bigger, faster fish. When the seahorse sits in the seaweed, they become difficult to see. The seahorse can move it's eyes independently. This helps the seahorse watch out for the bigger, faster fish!

There are about 35 species of seahorses found around the world. The males give birth, instead of the female. He gives birth to about 100 babies at one time. Sadly, many of these babies do not survive.

The seahorse... depending on the species... only live for one to four years.

Seahorses use their pectoral fins (on the sides) and a small dorsal fin (found on it's back) to move through the water. They use their long tail to grasp onto objects.
