Enchanting gallery of seahorses - the unicorn of the sea!

Prepare to be enchanted! Often referred to as the “unicorns of the sea,” seahorses have been capturing imaginations for centuries with their distinct shapes, vibrant palettes, and enthralling life habits. For example, did you know that it’s the male seahorse that carries and births the young? Or that these magical creatures have no stomach, so they must eat constantly to stay alive?

From the tiny pygmy seahorses, camouflaged perfectly among corals, to the regal leafy seadragons that seem to be plucked straight from a fantastical fairy tale, these images are sure to astonish and delight!
