Meeting a SeaEdmond
Our week of diving is continuing at camp and we are meeting a seahorse- or a SeaEdmond as we like to call them! Everyone ready? Grab those flippers and let’s goooooo!
Lined Seahorse Fun Facts:
- These tiny crustacean eaters are fish!
- Lined seahorses camouflage in with their surroundings and ambush their prey.
- Their eyes can rotate around and move independently of each other.
- Males are larger and have longer tails than females.
- They mate for life.
- Like other seahorses, the males incubate the eggs in a pouch. They give birth to the baby seahorses. They are about the size of a flat thumbtack.
- These little guys are not strong swimmers and attach to sea grass or other substrate to protect themselves.
“ambush their prey” that sounds evil when they look so NOT evil. I love SeaEdmonds but not as much as I love Edmond 🙂
