Seahorses are truly unique, and not just because of their unusual equine shape. Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous and mate for life. Rarer still, they are among the only animal species on Earth in which the male bears the unborn young. A baby seahorse is called a fry.
Seahorses have lived longer than dinosaurs and they are still living now. Seahorses live in almost every ocean and in the deepest part of the ocean.
