Short-snouted Seahorse (Hippocampus hippocampus)

…a species of seashore (Sygnathidae) which is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea and parts of the North Atlantic, particularly around Italy and the Canary Islands. Recently Colonies of H. hippocampus have been uncovered in the River Thames around London and Southend-on-Sea. Snort-snouted seahorses are typically encountered in shallow muddy waters, estuaries or seagrass beds.
