seahorse by petertwang seahorse by petertwang
some crazy kind of seahorse, i'm not a marine biologist so i don't know the species lolz. but it stayed right there, firmly latched to that blade of sea grass, swaying in the current of the aquarium tank. maybe it was sleepy.

Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach, California

He reminds me of a leopard gecko I once had. I like it.

maybe... can seahorses experience sadness? :shrug:

there were several other seahorses in the same tank, one of them swam up and latched on a nearby piece of grass. and then it proceeded to eat something floating in the water. it made me think about what it must be like to have your food float around in front of you before you eat it. there have been times when i dream of a nice big piece of triple chocolate cake beatifically hovering just out of reach.... but no.

now i am hungry.

I would like to think they can. The juist released an article about how clams and stuff have feelings. SO i think seahorses do too. I guess deep down inside I feel like ALL things. grass. trees. sealife. animals have feelings and emotions - but we just don't understand them yet.

haha. One day we will rent a space ship and a chocolate cake and test your dreams!!
