Seahorses can blend into a coral reef so well that it's almost impossible to see them. That's a good thing. Poor swimmers, they rely on camouflage and their unappealing bony texture to protect them from predators.
When resting by day or sleeping by night, seahorses
curl their long tails around grasses and corals to keep from being swept away by currents.
Seahorses don't have stomachs, so food passes through them quickly. Because of this, they have to eat and eat and eat.
