What exactly is a seahorse according to Wikipedia “Seahorse is the title given to 54 species of marine fish in the genus Hippocampus. “Hippocampus” comes from the Ancient Greek hippos meaning “horse” and kampos meaning “sea monster”

There are many different species of the Seahorse. They are quite beautiful. According to Wikipedia “Anatomical evidence, supported by molecular, physical, and genetic evidence, demonstrates that seahorses are highly modified pipefish. The fossil record of seahorses, however, is very sparse.”

What is really awesome is that you can go to any pet store and own one. They not only live in the big blue ocean but they also can live right in your own home.
