  • Seahorses change color when under stress. They have the ability to rapidly change color to blend in with their environment.
  • During courting, which can last for days, seahorses link tails and float for hours.
  • A pregnant male seahorse has many of the same hormones as pregnant mammals do.
  • Every seahorse has a coral net on it’s head. No two are alike, like human fingerprints.
  • Seahorses are so bony they don’t have many predators. Penguins are the main natural predator. The main concern for seahorses are humans who harvest them for trinkets, medicine, and food.
  • Seahorses can die from exhaustion from swimming in rough waters.
  • Male seahorses use their tails to fight during mating season. Females never fight males, just other females. This is usually for territory or food.
  • Seahorses don’t have teeth or a stomach. Due to a fast digestion process, they are almost constantly eating. Most of their lives are spent eating or sleeping.
  • Males and females dance for their mates and change color once a day, sort of like a greeting. They ignore each other the rest of the day.
  • Seahorses live for one to five years. Larger seahorses live longer than smaller ones.
