"Under the Sea"
The Pacific Seahorse lives in the
Pacific temperate and tropical waters (45 N to 45
S). These organisms can be found from San Diego, California to Baja
California, El Salvador, Panama, Columbia and in the Galapagos Islands
to Peru hiding amongst the reefs, mangroves, estuaries and sea grass
beds. Many of these seahorses usually are found in 1 meter to 20 meters
in depth, but some have been found at depths up to 60 meters. These
habitats are very ideal for a seahorse, because they are able to blend
in with the surroundings. In addition, seahorses have a long,
tail, which allows them to grasp on to coral, sea grass, rooted plants
and floating vegetation.
