Newborn seahorse, SEM Featured Animals Image

Newborn seahorse, SEM

Newborn seahorse. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a young seahorse (Hippocampus sp.). The seahorse is a fish that swims upright using its pectoral fins (upper right) and dorsal fin (lower centre). A young seahorse develops in one of hundreds of eggs that the female deposits in the male's pouch. The eggs hatch after 2-6 weeks. A seahorse sucks up tiny shrimps, fish larvae and tiny crustaceans through its tube-like mouth (upper centre). It can moor itself to plants or coral using its prehensile tail (lower left). Seahorses range in length from 2-40 centimetres, inhabiting temperate and tropical seas worldwide. Magnification: x20 at 6x7cm size

Seahorse Featured Animals Image

Seahorse

Seahorse (Hippocampus guttulatus), swimming underwater. This species is native to UK and European coasts. It is being bred at Seahorse Ireland, the world's first seahorse farm. The farm uses large water tanks with constantly circulating water are used and the seahorses fed on a diet of plankton and algae. Seahorse Ireland supplies animals to the aquarium trade and is developing technology that enable farmers in far and South- East Asia to conserve local stocks. Female seahorses produce up to 2, 000 eggs, which are transferred to the male's brood pouch for fertilisation and incubation. Many species are endangered through overfishing for the aquarium and traditional Chinese medicine trades

Hartmanns zebra Featured Animals Image

Hartmanns zebra

Hartmann's zebra (Equus hartmannae). Close-up of a zebra's eye, showing its characteristic stripy pattern. These wavy lines act to camouflage the zebra by making it blend in with the wavy lines of the tall grass around it. The fact that the stripes are black and white makes no difference to its main predator, the lion, which is colour-blind. This endangered species of zebra is found in coastal Namibia and southern Angola. Photographed near Solitaire, central Namibia
