Very cool. I never knew how a seahorse gave birth. Yay for dad!
Whoa. Weird. And crazy.
It looks like he’s sneezing out baby seahorses. And thanks. I’m thoroughly grossed out now.
thats grosser than what i thought it would be. yuck.
This is unnatural!1! They should be burned at the stake!
I live near The Deep in Hull where this was filmed. Makes me want to go, but I’ll be disappointed if there are no seahorse deliveries when I’m there!
LOL… I have no idea but every time he heaved, I heard in my head “BAM!” Uncontrollable laughter at a seahorse giving birth while at the office. Awesome. I thank you.
This is one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen…
That’s just because you couldn’t see yourself coming out of your mother.
And yet, I’m ok with that haha!
I am okay with that to!! It was fascinating!!
This was awesome!! I didn’t know male seahorses give birth!!
eerrrr. Wow. I’m… not sure how I feel about this, lol. It looks horrifying, yet… completely normal…WHY ARE THEY COMING OUT THE MALE? What exactly would you even CALL that orifice?
on another note, that is a LOT of bebehs.
lastly, since when does the female insert her thing into the male to make babehs?
The eggs are fertilized within the body of the female and then she transfers them to the male’s pouch. I’m not up on my seahorse reproductive anatomy so I’m not sure exactly how the egg transfer works but it’s pretty cool. They do have sooo many babies, I knew it was a lot but 1800 is impressive!
AWESOME!!! I’ve kept seahorses, but we only got about 10 to 12 babies each time.
