Gotta be one of the coolest/strangest animals
I quite like these animals and I wish they did better in aquariums.

Some animals, like seahorses, seriously make me doubt the theory of evolution. I've watched a video about how they may have evolved and it still seems farfetched to me. How does natural selection even create such a body plan?
>>4165482The males carry the babies in their bellies.
>>4165482I regularly forget that seahorses are real
>mpreg is real
>>4166066You’re not fooling anyone.
>>4165482They look more like a cross between a duck and a shrimp than a horse to me. Too late to change the name?
>>4166544Because it's funny like female hyena penises and venomous platypus spurs.
>>4166066When you actually see them stretching out horizontally, they look pretty much like any other pipefish. A seahorse could be thought of as just a pipefish that learned to anchor itself with its tail.
