Thorny Yet Beautiful

Also known as the thorny seahorse, the spiny seahorse is a medium sized marine fish in the seahorse family that can grow between 15-17cm long. They are most well-known for the thorns that cover their entire body from their prehensile tail all the way up to the top of their foreheads. They eat a carnivorous diet consisting mainly of small crustaceans and zooplankton that they suck up into their tiny mouths, and come in a variety of color from grey to bright yellow and green to red.
