Can a male seahorse get pregnant?
The female seahorse deposits her eggs into an opening in the front of the male's body, and he keeps them into a pouch until they hatch, at which time they "squirt" out of him. The seahorse is not pregnant in the sense we think of pregancy, he is just carrying the eggs in a safe place in a specialised pouch for doing so.

Thanks for the feedback!
they don't the girl puts the eggs in him
yes it can so can the female
Female. A man at the local fish store that had seahorses informed me that males prefer large female mates. Therefore, females are usually bigger.
No. Male seahorses do not get pregnant. The female lays the eggs inside a pouch on the male's stomach and the males carry them until it's time for them to hatch. … The young then swim out, and the male does not allow them to reenter the pouch.
it just carries the baby it dosent have it it would be funny though
males have pouches while females don't. the pouches are for carrying the female's eggs.

A male seahorse is a male seahorse.
Around 100-200 but the smaller species can have as little as 5 and the bigger species can have up to 1500 I hope this answers your question
Yes, there is no such thing as a female seawhore
male carries the babies because they are stronger and can pretect the babies
Unlike with humans, the male seahorse gives birth to the babies. Since it has the fertilization pouch, all a female must do is deposit the eggs in there.
yes, and once the females have eggs its the males job to carry them until they hatch
The Latin name for seahorse is Hippocampus.
The female produces the eggs in her body. They are passed to the male's pouch during mating where he inseminates them and they are incubated. Over time they developed the …pouch to protect the eggs until they are born. As for why the males adapted the pouch rather than the females, the male reproductive organs are mostly internal in fish (if you look male fish, you don't really see a visible penis). If the female had the pouch he wouldn't be able to reach in and inseminate them, so they would have needed to develop a way to pass them back to the female after insemination. Having the male develop the pouch made it so that the eggs are only vulnerable to attack from predatory fish and other dangers once rather than twice. Since fish don't have an actual penis, it was simpler to have the male develop a pouch than it would have been to completely change the anatomy of the male sexual organs.
The male seahorse has a special pouch on the back. The female puts her eggs in to the pouch for the male to fertilise and to look after until the young hatch and can leave… the pouch.
