griseus:

this is the first ever recorded birth of Pygmy Seahorses also known as Bargibant’s seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti), gif based on work done by researcher at the Steinhart Aquarium and California Academy of Science.

Pygmy seahorses are morphologically distinct from all other seahorses.  Apart from their extremely small size, they have a single gill opening on the back of the head (all other seahorses have a pair of gill openings either side of the head) and the young are brooded within the male’s trunk rather than a pouch on the tail.

 Bargibant’s seahorse lives only on one genus of gorgonian coral, Muricella spp

The Slingjaw Wrasse
Peter Wainwright is a fish biologist at UC Davis and studies the many ways fish eat their food.  His lab has a YouTube page that shows an array of fish eating their prey. In the animation above the slingjaw wrasse essentially creates a suction tube to eat small fish by unhinging its jaw.
