Pygmy Seahorses

If you view just one pygmy seahorse image-heavy post today (and you were planning to, right?), I recommend this one.

These incredible creatures live in the western central Pacific Ocean (known as the Coral Triangle region of southeast Asia) and rarely grow larger than 2 centimeters. They look like adorable toddler bath toys and blend perfectly in their Dayglow surroundings. Aren’t they fantastic?


I wish I could have one as a pet. I’d give it plenty of coral to…hover on.

  1. As if regular seahorses weren’t adorable enough! Mini seahorses? Too much.

  2. Oh my they are beyond beautiful. I adore seahorses what a lovely post. Thank you:) Eily x

  3. Awwww! Absolutely tips the adorable scale. I want to collect them all. Seahorses have always been one of my all-time favorite sea life creatures. I’d recommend these for the Hearse Carriage tank from an older post, but these little precious cuties deserve a happier surrounding. I can’t imagine them surviving in the big bad ocean.

  4. Oh… cuteness overload! They look like they should be swimming through a sea of lollipops and sugar-candy sticks. And the very first one was only discovered 40 years ago??? Makes you wonder how much more there is out there still to find… -Nx

  5. I love these things, their camouflage is incredible!
