Being released caught. In this locality but never recorded
There were at least 17 pygmy seahorses on the Muricella coral when I saw these two individuals, and a good number of them were carrying young. Very strange to see them congregating like that.

Animals are multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia or Metazoa. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. Most animals are motile, meaning they can move spontaneously and independently. All animals must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance (see Heterotroph).
