A seahorse father and his babies. Among seahorses, it's the male seahorse that becomes pregnant gives birth. The tiny babies stay close to their protective father by clinging to nearby plants with their strong tails.
Male Seahorses Give Birth to babies. Seahorses are the only animals in the entire animal kingdom in which the male, not the female gives birth and cares for their young! The female seahorse deposits the eggs into the male's small pouch like a kangaroo.
