Seahorse Kingdom

Playful Little Creatures

Seahorses are a curious group of creatures which belong to the Syngnathidae family. Try and say that three times fast!

All seahorses share some interesting traits; their jaws are fused to form a straw-like snout; instead of scales, they have thin skin stretched over a series of bony plates; they are poor swimmers, so they cling to vegetation with their tails.

You can find seahorses in oceans all over the world! There are over 40 species. Some live on coral reefs, others live around mangrove roots and many life in sea grass meadows. Pigmy seahorses are as tiny as your little finger nail, but Potbelly 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!

You can discover these amazing creatures as you journey into Seahorse Kingdom during your visit.
