Happy #FathersDay! A dad’s work is never done—particularly in the seahorse family, where fathers are tasked with carrying young, like this weedy sea dragon. Can you find the eggs?
It’s a brood! More than 80 weedy sea dragon babies have now hatched and are being cared for behind the scenes. The father, who carried the eggs in a brood pouch under his tail, has been delivering the young in a sea dragon display that’s part of our special exhibition, “The Secret Lives of Seahorses.”
Today’s puzzler: Can you find the weedy sea dragon hatchling emerging from this cluster of eggs?
In mid June we made an exciting discovery: one of our weedy sea dragon dads was carrying eggs. He still is, and just look at how they’re developing! Learn more about the “Secret Lives of Seahorses” special exhibition.
Our aquarists may be working hard to finish our new jellies exhibit, but our other special exhibition, “Secret Lives of Seahorses,” still gets plenty of attention! We recently added three new ribbon pipehorses, born in November 2011 at the Dallas Aquarium.
We just added beautiful tiger tail seahorses (Hippocampus comes) to our Secret Lives of Seahorses exhibit. But while they may be new to the exhibit, they’re Aquarium veterans. Three were on display in the Splash Zone in 2008 and 2009!
