Baby seahorse, about 3 cm, found on the muck.
A small H. trimaculatus was found on the beach along with wooden debris by a young Thai girl. It was transferred to a bottle of fresh sea water, and released later that day in seemingly healthy condition over an area where seahorses have previously been observed (bottom depth about 15m)
Seen swimming close to the surface above Richelieu Rock with its tail wrapped round a bit of rope discarded from fishing boat. I believe it may be a juvenile tiger tail seahorse, although it did not have the distinctive stripes on its tail. The main reason I thought it might be a tiger tail is because this is the only species we normally see at Richelieu Rock. I do not know why is was swimming at the surface when we normally only see them on the reef at 27m deep. I am wondering whether there was a failed attempt to catch it for the aquarium trade, as there were lots of fishing boats within sight even though Richelieu Rock is in a National Park.
Lined (Northern) Seahorse seen in West Palm Beach at Blue Heron Bridge, in a lagoon/estuary. I believe it is a young male, and as you can see by the photo, it has grown quite a lot of appendages for camouflage. Seahorses, primarily the Lined and Longsnout, are seen here regularly. The habitat is part muck, sand, seagrass, rubble and seaweed/algae.
This seahorse was given to us by fishermen who found it in their nets. I think the ID is correct but not having seen this species before would like confirmation. Idon't have much information other than what is here.
