Some brain food- How the Seahorse got it’s shape

  1. How odd to think the tiny seahorse is a predator, albeit a very quiet and almost passive one. At the aquarium the sea horses weren’t eating, but you could see not only the physical differences between them and their cousins the pipefish, but the “personalities.” The pipefish would dart sharply in and out of the weeds, while the seahorses would cling to a coral branch or weed, serenely bobbing in the current.

    Now that I think about it, it was like watching ninjas and Zen priests. Seahorses however are an endangered species, maybe because they are so peaceful.

    1. I’m intrigued as to how they evolved, HG.

      I think they are the lazy predator. They would have to be one of the more efficient feeders.

  2. Well, that was delightful. I love seahorses and I learned something today! Pipefish aren’t too shabby, either!

    1. That came off one of my YouTube subscriptions, Laurie.

      I think I’ll have to keep an eye out for more.
