Seahorses

Seadragons and Seahorses may sound like mythical creatures but here you can see just how real they are!
In this kingdom Seahorses grip at seagrass with their curly tails and suck up tiny shrimp with their straw-like snouts.

Male seahorses, seadragons and pipefish are the only male animals to give birth!

Seahorses

You can find seahorses in oceans all over the world! There are over 50 species. Some live on coral reefs, others amongst mangrove roots and many live in seagrass meadows. Pygmy Seahorses are as tiny as your little finger nail, but Big-belly Seahorses will be even bigger than your hand!

 Their Ancient Greek name is Hippocampus, which means ‘horse sea monster’. But we don't think our seahorses are monsters at all!

 Unfortunately, seahorses are at risk of extinction due to the pollution and destruction of their habitat. 150 million seahorses are also captured and killed every year to use in traditional medicine.

SEA LIFE BANGKOK succeed in breeding Big-belly Seahorses and Zebra Snout.
