Critter of the Week

From Afternoons, 3:32 pm on 9 December 2022

This week's critter is Aotearoa's only seahorse the pot-bellied seahorse (Hippocampus abdominalis). These elegant and portly creatures hang out in seaweed meadows all around the country, hoovering up food through their tubular snouts and engaging in elaborate courtship rituals.
