Tiny but lethal: watch as Denise’s Pygmy Seahorse (H. denise) captures and eats its prey.
Seahorses are masters of camouflage, a skill they depend on to survive and thrive. In this video, a Bargibanti’s pygmy seahorse (H. bargibanti), one of the world’s smallest seahorse species, disappear into its surroundings.
Breeding seahorses in captivity is an art that remains elusive to all but a few. The Zoological Society of London is having so much breeding success that they now have their hands full with a bevy of youngsters (from 2010).
