Seahorse Information Index
- Seahorse Anatomy
The anatomy of the seahorse is very interesting. First they have a face that looks like that of a land horse. Of course that is where the name comes from. They don’t have any genetic link to those horses though.
- Seahorse Habitat
The seahorse is found in many different locations around North and South America. They are typically located in the shallow tropical waters that are quite warm.
- Seahorse Feeding
Using their long snout the seahorse is able to consume their food with ease. They are slow feeders though so it can take them a great deal of time each day to eat.
- Seahorse Reproduction
The process of seahorse reproduction is very interesting. Studies show that the males and females will court for several days. During that period of time they will seem to take part in dancing rituals.
- Seahorse Predators
There are several different predators in the wild that the seahorse has to be careful with. Since these creatures don’t swim well and they don’t have defense mechanisms they are often at the mercy of their environment to protect them.
