Description

A small female individual measuring approximately 25-35mm in total length.

Possibility this is the same individual as one seen at the same location a few days earlier as the species, size, and approx depth (22) are all similar to the earlier observation : http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1343920

However confirming the likelihood that this observation is of the same individual was not possible so separate observation created.

Description

A female seen within 200m of 2 other sea horses, one being a pregnant male approximately 150m away in distance and 7 meters deeper than this indivudal.

Found feeding, became quite animated upon being observed, attempted temporary swimming followed by playing dead and repeating the process again, making measuring length especially tricky.

Description

Finally got a good photo of this elusive species. They aren't uncommon, but hang out in very small caves and recede when you shine your light in there.
