The Seahorse in Silhouette

with one comment

I remember seeing as a kid a documentary on marine life, and learning about how the male seahorses carry the eggs as they incubate. Men being pregnant?! It blew my five year old mind!

It turns out it’s a whole lot more intriguing than that. For example, during their courtship rituals (which are lengthy and ongoing, probably for efficiency’s sake), seahorses will join tails and dance, change colors, and eventually release their holds on seagrass and free-swim, snouts touching, so the female can lay her eggs into the male’s empty pouch.

The House in Silhouette

Sometimes here on this blog I get carried away, and forget that nature doesn’t mean just wildlife. People can connect with nature through a variety of ways, from the sand on the beach to a blazing fall sunset.
