Pipefish - A Weird Cousin of the Sea Horse
unquestionably sea horses are one of the most bizarre looking sea creatures. Pipefish, a close cousin is even weirder. Look at these fishes and you will agree with me.
Along with sea horses and sea dragons, the pipefish belong to the group Syngnathidae. There are thousands of species living in the oceans.
Like their sea horse brethren, the male pipefishes also do parenting duties like carrying eggs and also “giving birth”.
Most of the pipefish species live in the coral reefs. Some can also be spotted in sea grass beds. Here are some more photos of them.
