The first of our seahorses to be named from this season is Madeleine! She is a female Hippocampus kuda found on Koh Jum Noi, in Krabi province in Thailand. She measured 9.7 cm tall and you can see she has a beautiful stripe pattern on her snout and cheek. She was living in a sandy habitat with long stemmed seagrass in about 2 meters of water. Thanks to Mike for naming her.
