[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Seahorses are vertebrate fish. Technically, their taxanomic classification is the Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Chordata, Sub-phylum Vertebrata, Class Osteichthyes and Order Perciformes. They belong to the family Syngnathidae (syn - together or with [Greek] and gnathos - jaw [Greek]) which includes seadragons, pipefishes and pipehorses. Seahorses make up the genus Hippocampus (hippo - horse [Greek] and campos - sea animal [Greek]). They live in warm or temperate salt water off the coasts of Australia and the United States. They make their homes in reefs and seaweed. They are typically found at depths between .5 - 30 meters. In the reefs and seaweed, they have good protection from predators as well as a plenty of twigs to anchor themselves to.
