These creatures feed mainly on zooplankton, small crustaceans or small fish.
The male seahorses give birth to the young, which are only 7mm long. They can produce between 20 and 1000 babies at once!
They live in shallow inshore waters, but have been seen in open water clinging to drifting seaweed up to 13 miles away from land.
You'll find these seahorses in the Indo-Pacific region. They're not great swimmers, which is why they tend to stay in shallow waters or near seaweed which they can hold onto with their tails. They are monogamous and mate for life. A pair of seahorses can often be seen with their tails curled around each other, or in close proximity.
