The seahorse is a small marine fish that is unusual in several respects. It swims upright, propelling itself primarily with its dorsal fin; it does have small pectoral fins on the side of the head that it uses for guidance, but lacks the caudal fin that most fishes have. These graceful creatures prefer shallow water, especially sheltered areas like coral reefs or seagrass beds. I photographed this particular sea horse (also sea-horse) in an aquarium.
