Sea horses

This beauty was found here on the beach, just a few weeks ago

Once in a blue moon a sea horse will be found here on the beach in Esterillos Este.
Here in Costa Rica, the people believe that it is a sign of good luck to find a sea horse.

Sea horses are found in shallow tropical waters, such as estuaries and mangroves, and are acutally a species of fish.
The female deposits her eggs in the males brood pouch and he carries them until they hatch as miniature sea horses.
They are poor swimmers and can usually be found clinging to sea grass with their tails.
They seem like amazing, and mysterious creatures.
