Seahorses are a type of fish that float around in shallow tropical and temperate ocean waters. They are a very well known ocean creature due to its unique shaped body, horse shaped head, and spiraled tail. They have a hard armored skin to help protect against predators and bright orange shell to blend into the surrounding coral. Seahorses are carnivores, meaning they only eat other animals. Their diet usually consists of small shrimp or crustaceans that float by.
