Pygmy Sea Horse (Hippocampus sp
Gallery quality underwater photographic print by Paul Waldeck, available framed or unframed in several sizes.

Until recently, Pygmy Seahorses were thought to be very rare. However, scuba divers and underwater photographers have found that while not common, they are just very hard to find. Tiny-no more than 1/2 inch long-and unbelievably well camouflaged, Pygmy Seahorses are generally found on one of two host sea fans. They so closely resemble the sea fan that they are usually overlooked. Generally, only movement of the animal enables a sharp eyed photographer to find one. This species is particularly adept at camouflage.

Related to the Seahorse, they also use their prehensile tail to attach themselves to the sea fan on which they live. Incredibly shy, Pygmy Seahorses usually turn away when being photographed.

Photographed in Indonesia.
