We love seahorses

Seahorses are fascinating animals, captivating people with their unique appearance and intriguing behaviors. Here are some interesting facts about seahorses that highlight their uniqueness:

Unusual Body Shape: Seahorses have a distinctive appearance with a horse-like head, long snout, and a prehensile tail. Unlike most fish, they swim upright.

Slow Swimmers: Despite their seemingly delicate appearance, seahorses are not strong swimmers. They move at a very slow pace by fluttering their dorsal fin.

Dad's the Babysitter: In the seahorse world, it's the males that become pregnant! After a courtship dance, the female transfers her eggs to a special pouch on the male's abdomen. He then carries and nurtures the developing seahorse embryos.

Monogamous Relationships: Seahorses are known for forming monogamous pairs that mate for life. During the breeding season, they engage in daily courtship rituals, including holding tails and dancing together.

Conservation Concerns: Seahorses are at risk due to habitat destruction, overfishing, and the demand for them in traditional Chinese medicine and more. Conservation efforts are crucial to protect these unique creatures. Recognizing the urgency of this issue, we are eager to share the love of seahorses with the world through our new and improved exhibit.
