SEA HORSE

Did you know, it is the male seahorses that give birth to the next generation? The male seahorses carry the children in a pouch just like kangaroos. However, a male seahorse can carry and give birth to thousands of babies at one time.Don’t believe us? A video that has been going viral on the internet is testimony to that.The clip that we are talking about was shared by Twitter account, Nature is Lit. The account tweeted the 19-second video with the caption.The clip shows a seahorse giving birth to many babies in small groups in an aquarium.Seahorses give birth to their babies but do not raise them. Once a baby seahorse is out of the pouch, it is on its own. The offsprings do not get any protection and are susceptible to death. This is the reason very few seahorses survive.
