Long snouted Seahorse. Caballito de mar

Hippocampus guttulatus

Habitat:

Coastal salty lagoon of the Mar Menor, next to the Mediterranean Sea. At this time, it is likely that all the specimens of the seahorse in the lagoon have disappeared, since it is in extreme danger of death. The causes are discharges of toxic waters from intensive agriculture in the vicinity, from discharges from nearby mining, from excessive construction, from flooding with toxic products ... Many enemies for a little gem.-------------------------------------- Laguna salada costera de el Mar Menor, junto al Mar Mediterráneo. En este momento es problable que hayan desaprecido todos los ejemplares del caballito de mar de la laguna, pues esta se encuentra en peligro extremo de muerte. Las causas son los vertidos de las aguas tóxicas de la agricultura intensiva de las proximidades, de los vertidos de la minería cercana, de la excesiva construcción, de las inundaciones con productos tóxicos... Muchos enemigos para una pequeña joya.
