Mr. Ringed Pipefish in this photo is carrying eggs. Pipefish are related to seahorses. The males carry the eggs though seahorses keep them in a pouch rather than externally. CBC Radio’s Quirks and Quarks interviewed Dr. Katrien Van Look about The Mysteries of Seahorse Sexual Activity. No shotguns were used in Dr. Van Look’s research :-) Click on the player below to listen to the interview.
