Fotografías asombrosas de Caballitos de Mar y Dragones de Mar

With a long face like a horse, they have an almost mythical appearance, but are far from immortal as none of the seahorse family are strong swimmers and they often die during storms. They excel at camouflage and many can change colors to hide themselves in their natural underwater surroundings. There are declining numbers as these creatures are used in Asian herbal medicines. Bizarrely, for seahorses, leafy and weedy sea dragons and even pipefish — a relative — males are responsible for childbearing. Here are some fun facts and sensational shots of these tiny “sea monsters” that are truly spectacular!

Con una cara larga como un caballo, tienen un aspecto casi mítico, pero están lejos de ser inmortales, nadie de la familia de caballitos de mar son buenos nadadores y a menudo mueren durante las tormentas. Sobresalen en camuflaje y muchos pueden cambiar los colores y esconderse en su entorno natural bajo el agua. Hay una disminución del número ya que estas criaturas se utilizan en la medicina natural asiática. Curiosamente, los caballitos de mar y dragones de mar e incluso agujas de mar - un pariente - los machos son responsables de la maternidad. He aquí algunas fotos sensacionales de estos pequeños "monstruos marinos" que son realmente espectaculares!
