In Indonesia, Seahorses are popular pets, excluding the Spotted African Seahorse, which is extremely poisonous. In Canada and the United States, seahorses are legal pets, but require you have a liscense.

Where do sea horses live?

The seahorses are found in tropical and subtropical coastal and reef waters all over the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. Seahorses live in the Intertidal Zone of the Ocean which is also called the Sunlight Zone. They also live in mangrove roots, sea grass beds, mud slopes, open water, coral reefs, eel grass, kelp, and rocks.
Seahorses can be found primarily all over the world. You will usually find them living in shallow waters, among sea grasses and coral.

SeahorsesSeahorses are found in seas along temperate coasts and in the oceans of the tropics. They are a kind of fish (Hippocampus) that likes shallow tropical and temperate waters all over the world. They typically live at a depth of 60 to 70 feet below the ocean's surface, but some live a little deeper in the sea. Seahorses will spend summer months in shallow water and move deeper into the water in winter. They also like coral reefs and mangroves.

They don't swim well, so they prefer a vegetated habitat in sheltered areas with plenty of seaweed and grasses so they can hide. Sea horses can change their appearance to blend into their environment, and they can change their colors to attract other seahorses. They are closely related to pipefish and leafy sea dragons (which look almost exactly like the vegetation in which they live).
In the ocean. Generally around the reef with lots of good hiding places, also they will usually thrive in the cooler temperatures of the ocean.
