More fun facts about seahorses:

  • Seahorses are monogamous and the males bear the young.
  • They are poor swimmers and can die of exhaustion during storms.
  • They have no teeth or stomach so food passes extremely quickly through their digestive systems. Seahorses have to eat almost constantly to stay alive!
  • Population data for seahorses is generally lacking but several species are vulnerable to extinction due to habitat depletion and pollution.
