For one thing, these little critters are some of the cutest animals in the ocean. But that’s not what makes them so special. Female seahorses are smart, and have figured out the whole gender equality thing way better than humans. When a female seahorse gets it on with her honey, she drops up to 1500 eggs in a pouch on the front of the male’s body. Let him deal with the morning sickness; I have better stuff to do, she says. Okay, so seahorses probably don’t get morning sickness, but the males do carry the babies, and that’s pretty neat.
