OUR CREATURES

SEAHORSES

You can find seahorses in oceans all over the world. There are over 40 species. Pigmy seahorses are as tiny as your little finger nail, but big-belly seahorses will be even bigger than your hand.

Their ancient greek name is Hippocampus, which means ‘horse sea monster’. But we don't think our seahorses are monsters at all!

Unfortunately, seahorses are at risk of extinction due to the pollution and destruction of their habitat. 150 million seahorses are also captured and killed every year to use in traditional medicine.

SEA LIFE helps protect seahorses – You can discover these amazing creatures as you journey into your visit. Many of our aquariums have unique and rare species, including weedy and leafy sea dragons!

To swim, seahorses need to beat their dorsal fin nearly constantly, over 50 times a second!
