So, in honor of THE SEAHORSE SONG (dropping July 31), I thought it would be interesting to take a closer look @ the subject of the diddy, the seahorse.
They are actually some of the most interesting creatures on earth to me and I know you’re dying to know some seahorse trivia so without further ado, I give you 11 wild factz about these serene underwater equines!!
- Seahorses hold a Guinness world record for slowest swimmers in the sea. the dwarf seahorse moves 5 ft/hr. been there lol
- They have little fins, you guys. OF COURSE SWIMMING IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT.
- Like humans, some are monogamous for life and some are just down for breedin’ season
- Seahorses engage in an eight-hour courtship dance which includes spinning around, swimming side by side and changing colours.
- Female seahorses drop their eggs into the male’s pouch for fertilization and then is like byeeee
- The male seahorse can carry up to 2,000 lil seahorse babies at a time
- Seahorse bbs are called fries
- They look exactly like their parents
- They may be small but their appetites are mighty. they can consume up to 3000 brine shrimp per day largely because they have no teeth and no stomach and food just kind of passes through them like very fast
- they prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together
AND PERHAPS THE MOZT EXCITING FACT OF ALL::
