Photographs and Facts on Seahorses and Pipefish

Ask a scuba diver which he would rather see, a seahorse or a shark? The answer may surprise you. Seahorses and pipefish appeal to divers because of their unusual shape and the fact that they are thought to mate for life. Many divers have never seen a seahorse, not because seahorses are extremely rare, but simply because they are very difficult to find. Seahorses and pipefish are masters of camouflage. Still, the photographers featured in this image gallery have not only managed to locate these sneaky creatures, they have captured stunning shots of seahorses and pipefish in their natural environment.
