The Most Well Known of the Seahorses

The common seahorse is just that, the most common type of seahorse sighted around the world. This species goes by many other names such as estuary seahorse, yellow seahorse, and spotted seahorse, and has been referred to as ‘sea pony’ as well. It is native to the Indo-Pacific region and is quite large as far as they go, averaging between 17-30cm long. These fascinating animals come in a variety of colorations from dark and grainy to yellow with blotches, or reddish with small dark specks. They eat a carnivorous diet consisting mainly of small crustaceans and zooplankton.
