Seahorse Learning/Activity Workbook For Kids!
Seahorses are tiny fishes that are named for the shape of their head, which looks like the head of a tiny horse. There are at least 25 species of seahorses.
You'll find seahorses in the world's tropical and temperate coastal waters swimming upright among seaweed and other plants. Seahorses use their dorsal fins (back fins) to propel slowly forward.
Tiny, spiny plates cover seahorses' bodies all the way down to their curled, flexible tails. The tail can grasp objects, helpful when seahorses want to anchor themselves to vegetation.
