If you are looking for the adapting features of sea horses, here are some little facts about them:

  • Size
The size of a sea horse means that it is adaptive to its environment. It is able to hide amongst the seaweed and other types of sea foliage, away from predators that are foraging for food. These predators may be able to smell the sea horses, but they will have difficulty catching them. Team this with the speed of a sea horse and they are bound to have some trouble catching up with them and being successful in their hunt.

  • Camouflage
Another adaptive feature of sea horses is that they are often camouflaged into the environment, meaning that it is even more difficult for predators to spot them and track them down. They cannot be seen against some plants in the water and, as long as they remain still, they shouldn't be detected.

  • Reproduction
Sea horses are different to most animals. The male is the one who falls pregnant. The eggs are placed in the male's brooding pouch and he curls inwards once this occurs to give the best chance of fertilizing the eggs. Once fertilized, the male sea horse attaches himself to a nearby piece of plant and the eggs are hatched in his pouch and are spurted out when ready for birth.

If you are looking to find more information on the adaptive features of sea horses, you can do so by visiting your local library and asking your librarian to direct you to the books on wildlife and sea creatures. This way, you can educate yourself about animals whilst specializing on the one that you are interested in studying. There will be endless information available to you regarding the sea horses, including more interesting facts.

In nature, the seahorse usually like sea in their lives in the coral reefs, because they are not good at swimming, so often use it appropriate to grasp the outline of the living coral tightly; the leaves, seaweed, fixed, to make the body is not washed. While most species of sea dragon grows in the estuary and, therefore, they can border to the sea areas under different concentrations, even in fresh water can survive.
