Hippocampus pontohi pygmy seahorse, Bunaken Marine Park, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
Pontohi pygmy seahorses have only recently been described. They were discovered by an Indonesian dive guide in Sulawesi. Rather than living on sea fans like other species of pygmy seahorse, these minute fish prefer mixed substrates of hydroids and encrusting algae, often in overhangs on current swept rocks. Bunaken Marine Park is a very popular dive destination, famous for its beautiful coral reefs, marine biodiversity and vertical walls.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
