Seahorse heads have a ‘no wake zone’ that’s made for catching prey: here.
Seahorses belong to the genus Hippocampus, which gets its name from the Greek words for “horse” and “sea monster.” With their extreme snouts, weirdly coiled bodies and sluggish movements produced by to two puny little fins, these oddly shaped fish seem like an example of evolution gone terribly awry. And yet, new research published today in Nature Communications shows that it is precisely the seahorse’s uncanny looks and slow motions that allow it to act as one of the most stealthy predators under the sea: here.
