Today for my #NatureDoodlewash  “hike”  I went diving underwater 😉  I am going to share my watercolor of a beautiful sea creature a “ Seahorse“.  I love everything that has to do with ocean, sea and water and I enjoyed very much to paint the colorful beauty of this Seahorse.

Seahorse is the name given to 54 species of small marine fishes in the genus Hippocampus. “Hippocampus” comes from the Ancient Greek word hippos meaning “horse” and kampos meaning “sea monster”. The word “seahorse” is often written as two separate words, or hyphenated. Having a head and neck suggestive of a horse, seahorses also feature segmented bony armour, an upright posture and a curled prehensile tail.

  6. That’s a magnificent seahorse, Carolina! They must have been larger at some point in history to be classed as monsters though! Nowadays they’re merely cute! 😀
