Seahorse (additionally written sea-horse and sea horse) is the name given to forty six species of small marine fish inside the genus hippocampus. "hippocampus" comes from the historic greek hippokampos , itself from hippos that means "horse" and kampos which means "sea monster". Having a head and neck suggestive of a horse, seahorses also function segmented bony armour, an upright posture and a curled prehensile tail. Seahorses are specifically determined in shallow tropical and temperate salt water at some stage in the sector, from about 45°s to 45°n. They stay in sheltered areas inclusive of seagrass beds, estuaries, coral reefs, and mangroves.
Four species are located in pacific waters from north the united states to south the usa. Inside the atlantic, hippocampus erectus ranges from nova scotia to uruguay. H. Zosterae, called the dwarf seahorse, is discovered inside the bahamas. Colonies had been located in ecu waters including the thames estuary. Three species stay in the mediterranean sea: h. Guttulatus (the lengthy-snouted seahorse), h. Hippocampus (the fast-snouted seahorse), and h. Fuscus (the ocean pony). These species form territories; males live inside 1 m2 (10 squareft) of habitat, at the same time as girls range over about one hundred instances that.
