Animal of the Day: 07/14/2010 – Spiny Seahorse

Spiny Seahorse

The animal of the day is the Sea Horse.

Did you know: The males of this family have a brood pouch in which the female deposits her eggs, and he fertilizes in his tummy! The male will then care for the young until they are old enough to fend for themselves. Occasionally, the male will EAT some of his offspring though…naughty daddy.
