( Hippocampus ramulosus)
The remarkable tiny seahorse migrates inshore in summer and it is believed they travel into deeper water in winter to avoid the worst effects of storms. In 2006 greatly increased numbers were reported off the SW coasts of England due to warm seas, and they have been found as far north as Shetland. Seahorses in captivity have been recorded living as long as 7 years. Coated in armour and spines seahorses swim upright using their large dorsal fin, and often hide in sea grass and seaweed, holding onto this by their tail. The most unusual of its many strange characteristics however is that the male does the parenting, carrying the eggs around inside its pouch until incubated, and keeping the young there until they are large enough to be released.
