Description

3 seahorses observed, 2 Lined (they are called that here) and 1 Longsnout. They were seen in West Palm Beach at Blue Heron Bridge, in a lagoon/estuary. Seahorses, primarily the Lined and Longsnout, are seen here regularly. I believe the Lined seahorses are a mated pair because they were within 6 feet of each other. The Longsnout Seahorse appears to have a nudibranch on its body. Is this a parasite found on seahorses? The habitat is part muck, sand, seagrass, rubble and seaweed/algae.
