Male Pregnant Sea Horse From the Hudson River

Last week I stopped by the River Project and met this male pregnant sea horse that they have in their capture and release program. It’s amazing to me that these ethereal and magical fish live in the Hudson River! You can tell he is pregnant by the dark patch on his lower abdomen. The staff at the River Project told me that he had been frantically trying to mate with all of the female sea horses in the tank who were three times his size. Finally he got pregnant and is carrying (like a kangaroo) the baby sea horses. Soon he will be released back into the Hudson to give birth. Good luck, little guy!
