Male SeaHorses are something incredible, which gives birth to their young ones. This is different to realize among the animal kingdom and is one of the significant and amazing facts about animals.
The interesting reason behind this could be, when male seahorse takes part in carrying offspring, female seahorses are left free for making more eggs.
Male pumps sea water into its pouch during mating and after male and female court, female takes part in laying eggs in male’s pouch and male starts hatching as its pouch atmosphere is well suited with temperature, water salinity and blood flow.
Also male seahorse could able to contribute in providing nutrient-rich egg yolks within their pouch.
Gestation period for the baby seahorse may lasts for 2 – 4 weeks.
The male can deliver babies and get pregnant again in a same day. During this delivery, a male seahorse can give birth to around 1000 babies. Unfortunately, 5 or 6 would meet adulthood.
The reason could be because, those baby seahorses get carried away by deep ocean currents and eaten up by other animals.
Thus, parent seahorses share their duty in carrying their offspring safe and better, which is uncommon in among other animals.
Unlike other creatures, seahorses face horrifying birth mechanism and history.
