The birth of a seahorse is kind of different than other creatures. This is due to the fact that instead of female seahorses, it’s the male seahorses that carry and give birth to their little ones. It is pretty interesting, don’t you think?
During the mating process, a female seahorse deposits around 1,800 eggs in a male seahorse’s pouch. The pouch can hold up to around 2,000 eggs though. The male seahorse then stays pregnant for anywhere around 10 to 25 days. In this clip, we get treated to a seahorse delivery that was recorded at the Deep Hull, Yorkshire. The world’s only submarium is home to over 3500 fish, including sharks and rays. You are going to be speechless when you see this delivery for yourself.
