  Seahorse holding onto weed

Favorite thing: The seahorses are in a small aquarium in Loro Parque that it is possible to put your nise up against if you wish to. They will be only a matter of centimetres from your face.

Their life appears to consist of sitting around hanging on to ribbons of weed. I'm sure they must do a bit more than that, but that is all I saw them do!

The Seahorse is actually a fish, and is bizarre in the animal world in that the male carries the fertilised eggs in a pouch, and actually appears to give birth to baby seahorses. I bet there are a few women ot there who would like this to be true for the human species as well, but I think it works pretty well as it is!

Apparently the seahorses in Loro Parque regularly breed, which is rare in captivity.
