Caption

Shiho's seahorse (Hippocampus sindonis). X-ray of a section through a Shiho's seahorse, showing its snout (upper left) and long curled tail (bottom). At just over one inch long, this elegant fish is readily identified as a seahorse by its characteristic head. The body ends in a tail that can curl around and hold on to algae or coral. This species is found only in the waters around Japan. This specimen measures 3 centimetres in length.
