Marine Life Behavior (30/69)
Roughly the size of a grain of rice, this Pygmy Sea Horse, Hippocampus bargibanti, is a master of camouflage, blending in perfectly with its Gorgonian host, Muricella sp. The distended abdomen of this individual indicates that it is probably a pregnant male. Raja Ampat Islands, West Papua, Indonesia, Pacific Ocean.
