#AnimalOfTheMonth: An Early Start for May: #SaveTheSeahorse

We are so passionate about our #AnimalOfTheMonth Project, that we just couldn’t WAIT until next week to pick out and adopt our next animal…The Seahorse! How could we resist this little adorable sea creature? So let today mark the official day we are announcing that we will #SaveTheSeahorse in the month of May.

Seahorses live in shallow tropical and temperate waters, anchoring themselves to sea grasses and coral. Their diet consists of bottom dwelling organisms, including shrimp-like crustaceans and plankton. They face threats from bycatch, incidental capture and habitat degradation. Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous and mate for life. Rarer still, they are among the only animal species on Earth in which the male bears the unborn young.
