Seahorses are a type of small fish that have armored plates all over their body (they don't have scales). There are about 50 different species of seahorses around the world. Seahorses have a long, horse-like head (hence their name) and a curled tail. Seahorses range in size from about 4/10ths of an inch to about 1 foot long. They live in seaweed beds in warm water and are very slow swimmers. Seahorses can change their color to camouflage themselves in order to hide from enemies.
