EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the exquisite beauty of a Thorny Seahorse (Hippocampus histrix) gracefully positioned behind a vibrant sponge. With its intricate patterns and delicate features, this enchanting seahorse species can be found dwelling in seagrass beds and coral reefs across the tropical Indo-Pacific region, spanning from east Africa to Hawaii. Measuring up to approximately 17 centimeters in length, this Thorny Seahorse is a true marvel of nature's artistry. Its unique appearance, adorned with thorny protrusions all over its body, adds an element of intrigue and fascination. This particular photograph was taken in the mesmerizing waters of Seraya, Bali, Indonesia. As an emblematic representative of marine life and aquatic fauna, this image captures the essence of zoology and biology beneath the ocean's surface. The Thorny Seahorse belongs to the family Syngnathidae—a group that includes pipefishes and seadragons—and serves as a testament to the incredible diversity present within our planet's ecosystems. The Science Photo Library has masterfully captured this single moment in time where science meets art. It allows us to appreciate not only the biological wonders hidden within our oceans but also reminds us of their fragility. Let this image serve as a reminder that we must continue to protect these precious underwater habitats for future generations to admire and cherish.
