The seahorse gets its name from having a head that looks a lot like a horse. Believe it or not, there are 36 species of this majestic underwater creature. They best move up and down with the force of their tails and a small controlled air pocket on their bodies to maintain balance and direction. A seahorse may be small but it is powerful, especially due to its camouflage capabilities. They use it as protection against hunting, but they also use it as a benefit for their own hunting when they are hungry for small crustaceans.
