Seahorse

 

Seahorses are small marine fish in the genus Hippocampus, named so for the superficial resemblance of their head and neck areas to horses. There are 45 different species of seahorses, ranging in size from less than an inch to over one feet in length. Many seahorses have specialized skin that allows them to camouflage themselves in color and texture with their background. Perhaps the most popular "fun" fact about them is that seahorse males carry the young through pregnancy and birth. The eggs are deposited by the female into the brood pouch of the males where they gestate from 2 to four weeks until the males give live birth. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
