A Family Story

The seahorse is part of a rather exceptional family, the sygnanthids! Including seadragons, pipefish, and pipehorses (yes, really!), this is a diverse, outlandish and charismatic group of fish. With infidelity, male pregnancies, pair bonding and amazing camouflage, Dr Richard Smith shows us just how fascinating these cousins of the “fused jaw” really are!
