    Amazing shot! I’ve been learning about a part of the brain today called the hippocampus in my psychology lesson- called that because it looks like a seahorse! I’m in awe of this shot! x

    Very cool, i’d love to see one of these guys in real life, i’ve heard they are a nightmare to find.

  • Thank you for all your kind comments. With Pygmy Seahorses the trick is to find a diveguide who knows where they are – the guys in Papua New Guinea are often very good at this.

  • True – you need a good local dive guide who knows where to find them.
