I went to the Adelaide Zoo recently and was lucky enough to see a baby seahorse. The zoo has a population of an Australian seahorse, the Hippocampus abdominalis, commonly known as the Pot-Bellied Seahorse or Big-Bellied Seahorse. Their adult males were very pregnant and new arrivals were imminent. In seahorses it’s the males that give birth to live young. On the day that I went, there was on new arrival at the top of the tank.
It was frustrating at being unable to film the seahorse fry, (baby seahorse), with my macro lens on my DSLR camera as I was too short. I had to make do with my iPhone4. It didn’t turn out too bad.
