Seahorses, Sea Dragons and their Relatives II

Previous Page

Seahorses and their close relatives, pipefishes and sea dragons, are fish that have sacrificed speed for armor and camouflage. They are encased in bony rings and have fused jaws that form a tube-like snout. Seahorses have a prehensile tail for grasping, and are unique in that it is the male who incubates eggs within a brood pouch, eventually giving birth to live young.
