You can find seahorses in oceans all over the world. There are over 40 species. Pigmy 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!

In addition, 150 million seahorses are captured and killed every year for use in traditional medicine.

SEA LIFE helps protect seahorses; you can discover these amazing creatures during the journey of your visit.
