Seahorses, Hippocampus species

Spotted mainly when we’re scuba diving around the pier at Chaloklum Village or on the sand outside the reef at Mae Haad Bay, here on Koh Phangan. Our Common Seahorse was wrongly identified as “Spiny” ’til 2014; thanks again to Lawrence for putting us right – apparently the females have the yellow colouration and the males are brown.
