Male seahorses have a clear agenda when it comes to selecting a mating partner: to increase their reproductive success. By being choosy and preferring large females, they are likely to have more and bigger eggs
Swiss scientists say they've found male seahorses have a strong preference for large females so as to have more and bigger eggs, as well as larger offspring. Beat Mattle and Tony Wilson of the Zoological Museum at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, said seahorses have an unusual mode of reproduction: male pregnancy.
A British woman who lives 3 miles inland saved the life of a seahorse she found on her front lawn, apparently dropped there by a gull. The seahorse, now named Pegasus, is recovering in a quarantine tank at the Sea Life Center near Karen Warr's house in Weymouth, the Daily Mail reports. Warr said she was on her way to buy a newpaper when she spotted a funny object, which turned out on closer inspection to be a seahorse, lying next to the front walk.
A new study indicates that the ancestors of seahorses likely stood upright some 20 to 25 million years ago, when the expanse of ocean between Australia and Indonesia was much shallower and full of sea grass.
