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
