Please check out BBC Earth 🌏 This amazing shot by Justin Hofman highlights the disgraceful way the majority of the “human” population is treating the Earth. This was taken in Indonesia but we are all guilty. Everyone of us can make a difference cause if that one person hadn’t used/disposed this cotton bud then this little buddy wouldn’t be floating around holding onto it. We can all make a difference....... how beautiful are Seahorses #BBC#blueearth#seahorses#pollution#makeachange#makeadifference#justinhofman#justinhofmanphotography

• Male pregnancies free the females to make more eggs straight after mating and reproduce quicker. •The male seahorse carries the eggs in his pouch until they hatch, then releases fully formed, miniature seahorses into the water. •As little as 5 or as many as 1,500 young can be born.
Athletes from around the world are taking their final turns this weekend, and we think our longsnout #seahorses are a strong contender for gold! Their partner-dancing skills are unparalleled as they float with ease under the water. They make it look so easy!
