Seahorses

Parent Category: Saltwater Fish
Seahorses are named for their equine-like head and prefer to live in sheltered areas such as coral reefs. Seahorses are one of the few animal breeds where the male gives birth rather than the female.
Seahorses are mostly endangered because some people use them for medicinal purposes.   because people like catching them for souvenirs and they also like drying them.   Chinese also catch them because they use them for medicine.

Cold-blooded creatures take on the temperature of their  surroundings. They are hot when their environment is hot and cold  when their environment is cold. In hot environments, cold-blooded  animals can have blood that is much warmer than warm-blooded  animals.
