Male seahorse gives birth to an army of offspring – video
A male White’s seahorse has been filmed giving birth to dozens of babies … yes, a father giving birth. Seahorse females deposit their eggs into a pouch in the front of the males, where the eggs are fertilised.
More than 100 seahorse babies have been born in a Sydney aquarium as part of a captive breeding program to help save the endangered White’s seahorse. The breeding program is a collaboration between Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, Fisheries NSW and the University of Technology Sydney
