5 Facts about Seahorses
There are more than 40 known species of seahorses. Seahorses swim in pairs with their tails linked together. They swim upright and avoid predators by mimicking the colour of the underwater plants. Seahorses propel themselves by using a small fin on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second. They have no teeth and no stomach. Food passes through their digestive systems so quickly that they must eat almost constantly to stay alive.
