This one was about 8 cm long, I almost missed it in the algea growing on the rocks. Those little creatures are very good at hiding. This one got disturbed by our presence and started to swim,
Reef close to the resort in shallow, sheltered water, hiding amidst seaweed and sea-grass is common for this specie.
Reproduction cycle is interesting. Males are being pregnent. They have special pouch where female is depositing eggs. After about 5 weeks small seahorses emerge.
