Seahorse (also written sea-horse and sea horse ) is the name given to 54 species of small marine fishes in the genus Hippocampus . "Hippocampus" comes from the Ancient Greek word hippos ( ἵππος , híppos ) meaning "horse" and kampos ( κάμπος , kámpos ) meaning "sea monster". [3] Having a head and neck suggestive of a horse , seahorses also feature segmented bony armour, an upright posture and a curled prehensile tail. [4]

Seahorses are mainly found in shallow tropical and temperate waters throughout the world, from about 45°S to 45°N [5] and live in sheltered areas such as seagrass beds, estuaries , coral reefs , or mangroves. Four species are found in Pacific waters from North America to South America. In the Atlantic, H. erectus ranges from Nova Scotia to Uruguay. H. zosterae , known as the dwarf seahorse, is found in the Bahamas.

Three species live in the Mediterranean Sea : H. guttulatus (the long-snouted seahorse), H. hippocampus (the short-snouted seahorse), and H. fuscus (the sea pony). These species form territories; males stay within 1 m 2 (11 sq ft) of habitat, while females range about one hundred times that.
