Short Snout Seahorses are shy creatures that feed very frequently because of their small digestive tract, on small shrimp called Mysis and Pacifica.
The male Seahorses 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.
