Short Snout Seahorses are shy creatures that feed frequently because of their small digestive tract. They feed on small shrimp called Mysis and Pacifica.
The male Seahorse looks after the brood of babies in his pouch so the female can start producing a new batch of eggs immediately to increase the total number of young the pair create.
