Pygmy Seahorses are tiny fish that are nearly indistinguishable from their habitats due to their size and extreme camouflage. Diver Dena has captured this beautiful image in Puerto Galera, Philippines. Pygmy Seahorses stay on the same Seafan their whole lives. They have among the smallest home range of any fish, not venturing further than an area the size of a side plate for all their day-to-day activities. Like other Seahorses, it’s the male Pygmy that becomes pregnant. He gives birth to approximately a dozen young after a gestation of 10-14 days! Due to their amazing camouflage ability and tiny size, many pygmy seahorse species have only been discovered over the past 10 years, and more may be discovered.
