Why do seahorses have small fins?
For balancing itself while swimming.
Yes seahorses have fins.
seahorses use their tail and fins to swim.
Yes seahorses have 3 fins. One is the dorsal fin and I don't know what the other 2 are called. Type your answer here...
Seahorses are fish that live underwater and breath with gills, and have fins.
Seahorses are poor swimmers, their fins (ventral fins) are used for maneuvering themselves from plant to plant, but the current usually does this for them. The air in their swim bladders can fluctuate so they can position themselves, much like a diver's buoyancy control device.
Seahorses are very slow. They only use their small dorsal fins to propel themselves through the water, steering with their pectoral fins. They mainly rely on camouflage for protection, by changing colors very fast, and staying still in the water. They may anchor themselves to a plant with their tails. Their spiny armor is also an important defense.
fish and seahorses
Seahorses are bony fish. They have fins and a tail. Seahorses swim by moving their fins. They generally prefer to find a safe spot and hang onto seaweed or coral with their tails however. They don't swim around very much.
Their bodies are fairly rigid, and they only have tiny fins to flap around with.
Seahorses move through the ocean by using their dorsal and pectoral fins. The dorsal fin helps to propel the seahorse by beating up to 70 times per second. The pectoral fins located on the head help seahorse to steer and remain stable in water.
Yes, yes and they are very cute. There is a pectoral fin, anal fin and dorsal fin.
Seahorses gained international protection on May 15, 2004 -What do South American Spider Monkeys, Ringtail Opossums and seahorses have in common? They all have prehensile tails. -Seahorses are members of the Teleost suborder, or bony fish. -Seahorses usually live in the tropics or along temperate coasts. -The average height of a full-grown sea horse is 2-8 inches. Seahorses also vary in color, including orange, red, yellows, grey, and greens. -Seahorses can come in patterns like… Read More
Tiny, tiny, almost transparent fins. And they can use their tails to grasp or stretch for a strip of seaweed with.
They use motors attacked to their fins to hit about 80mph or man made submarines
Seahorses are unique from other fish in that they have an outer, or exoskeleton. Seahorses do not have caudal fins or scales like most other fish and can live between three and 7 years.
seahorse use their tail to flick off sand(or any other grounds underwater)to help it to swim it has small fins on each side of its body(by head like ears)to help it to swim higher to surface.
Seahorses like to eat small fish, small shrimp, plankton and other small creatures. small fish, small shrimp, and plankton. mall fish, small shrimp, and plankton.
Seahorses eat plankton and tiny crustaceans such as small shrimp.
They are very small and have a bendy tail :-)
Seahorses eat small shrimp, plankton and little fish
Very often small.
Quite slowly. Their bodies are fairly angular and rigid, and they have in comparison really tiny fins to swim around with.
They don't. Sea horses have tiny, almost transparent dorsal(=back) fins that they flap at a furious rate to swim about with.
Large fins are fins that are large, in size. They are the opposite of small fins, and they are somewhat larger than medium fins. They are just a bit smaller than XL fins.
Boys have big fins girls are small and have small fins =)
seahorses dont swim succesfully, but they do have little fins on their sides to help them get away from preditors. seahorses have a lot of adaptations like camoflage, spikes and spines on their body. they eat other tiny fish and bits of seaweed. that is how a seahorse survives.
The size of fins affects the stability and angle, small fins are best.
Seahorses are very small compared to humans. They will not attack us. Swimming is perfectly safe (from seahorses).
small shrimps, also a very small fish and plankton
seahorses eat other small animals such as krill. If seahorses wouldn't exist the population of krill would be to much. Hence seahorses are useful animals and we should protect the. But remember every animal has a purpose of living.
It is considered a fish because it is cold-blooded, has fins to help it swim and gills to help it breathe in water. Because they breath water not air.
small fish,shrimp and plankton.
seahorses have long snouts and no teeth because they only eat very small fish, plants, and plankton
I'm not entirely sure, but Seadragons (Cousins of seahorses) eat small crustaceans, such as Mysid Shrimps. Young Seadragons eat small zooplankton until they are big enough to swallow the Mysid Shrimps. I would imagine that the diet of seahorses are very similar. If this is for some sort of test, then put "small crustaceans".

•seahorses are small fish that eat small shrimp, tiny fish and plankton. so they are a small carnivore in marine habitats such as coral reefs, and sea grass beds.. Seahorses are ambush predators that eat shrimp, small fish and other crustaceans. They are in turn consumed by crabs, rays and some sharks, tuna, angler fish, penguins and dolphins. Most fish avoid seahorses because of their boney plating. Seahorses are also a master of camoflage, making… Read More
i don't think they can hurt you. they have no teeth so they can not bite plus they are really small. so NO seahorses don't hurt people.
Seahorses feed on small crustaceans
No, because it too small"( about the size of your finger)
you can tell if its a boy or girl by the fins the male Betta has long fins and the female Betta has small fins
The seahorses niche is said to be secondary consumers classified as predatory fish. They eat small fish and are commonly found in marine habitats
a sea horse eats Brine Shrimp unless if they are caught as wild seahorses then they eat frozen foods
Porpoises have triangular dorsal fins (as opposed to the curved dorsal fins of dolphins and whales). Some species of porpoise have small bumps on their fins, but the purpose of these bumps is unknown.
They just move with waves and float so they don't need huge fins.
Male has pointy pelvic fins. Female does not. Pelvic fins are small fins on the bottom near the butt.
yes that is what thjey eat
baby seahorses who are also called fry eat plankton and other fishes small enough to swallow eat larvae as well.
5 inches tall and 1 inch small
They eat little shrimp and small crustaceans
Yes, all fish do have fins to help them swim. But some have very small fins, and some marine animals such as snakes and eels may not have true fins. Most fish have prominent fins at the end of their tails to guide them, as well as dorsal fins on their backs.
