pastel painting seahorses.

Description: Seahorses immerge into there surroundings so well sometimes it’s hard to notice them. Among seahorses it’s the males that give birth; seahorses mate, the female deposits her eggs into a special pouch on the male’s belly. The pouch seals shut while he nurtures the developing eggs. Once the eggs hatch, the pouch opens and the male goes into labor—giving birth to his tiny young Each male at an average bear less a 50 young at a time; those of the largest bear up to 1,000 only one or two may live to become adults and raise young of their own kind, today, people threaten their survival, too—collectors take tons to dry and sell as souvenirs. The more we take, the fewer we leave to reproduce—putting long snout populations in danger.
