Longsnout Seahorse (Hippocamus reidi)
Seahorses captivate children of all ages, making them one of the most popular fish on this list. Although uncommon throughout the Caribbean, they are seen with regularity at certain “special” sites. This is a shallow water species found from the surface down to 40 feet. This species varies in color from red to orange, yellow, white and black. Seahorses curl the base of their tail around branches for support. They are often shy and consistently turn their head away from snorkelers, especially those with a camera like me! See the e-book.
