Hippocampus minotaur (Bullneck seahorse)

Language: Mandarin Chinese

Wikipedia Abstract

Hippocampus minotaur, the bullneck seahorse, is a pygmy seahorse in the genus Hippocampus. The seahorse has never been found in the wild, and little is known about its natural habitat. The only known specimens were collected on the coast of Eden, Australia. It is thought to live in sand beds at the bottom of the ocean, possibly wrapping its prehensile tail around gorgonian corals.
