Facts about Seahorses

Seahorse Facts

Let me tell you all about seahorses! Seahorses live mainly in shallow coastal areas and are found in both tropical and temperate waters all over the world. Seahorses do not have stomachs, so they have to eat a lot because their food goes straight through their digestive tract. The adult seahorse can eat up to fifty times a day!!


Facts about seahorses:

1. Seahorses can get up to 14 inches long.
