Description

Hands up if you like Seahorses, hopefully you like them in the way we scuba divers like them and not in the way the Chinese like them, you know, crushed up in your morning tea. Trust me when I say that dried Seahorse drinks won’t make your willy any stronger.

Back on topic, if you are a fan of the every mysterious Seahorse, then here is one that we have started to find very regularly on our go to beach dive site, Kata Beach. We dive the beach quite often because the access is easy and it’s cheaper, plus we can do 120 minutes on a single tank and not worry about dive time or other groups. This lets us explore the area and with that exploration has come a treasure trove of Seahorses all over the beach dive area.

This Seahorse is a Hedgehog, I truly have no idea why they called it that, but they did and we just have to deal with it. But it is cool to see something other than the everyday Tigertail Seahorse that is common to Phuket and Thailand dive sites. It took us a while to ID these properly as we were certainly not expert Seahorse ID specialists before, but after many dives and many Seahorses found, the differences do start to become a little easier to see.

If you want to learn more about Seahorse identification here is an awesome page with helpful Seahorse guide books that you can download completely free of charge and I highly recommend if you like photographing Seahorses that you get the PDF guide book, it’s super helpful.

Some dives we are literally ignoring Seahorse on Kata Beach because we find so many of them, so if you really want to see more Seahorse, book a dive at Kata Beach!

The Latin name for this type of Seahorse is Hippocampus Spinossissimus, common name is Hedgehog Seahorse.

These guys might not be the rarest find on earth but the Dragonet are relatively beautiful fish, at least when they are young. The Juvenile Orange & Black dragonet comes with oranges, yellows, blues and more when small and as they mature turn a sandy brown. Sounds like some office workers I know [...]

Common Seahorse – Kata Beach

Keeping with this week theme of Seahorse photos here is a very dirty little Common Seahorse (Hippocampus Kuda), why is he dirty, well just look at him, obviously has not had a bath or shave in a while. Usually you don't get Seahorses covered in hair or algae like this one, I would say this is a l [...]

Fimbriated Moray

This is another one of my favourite moments from my travels in Burma/Myanmar, it was a night dive, the sites name I've sadly forgotten with time, it was insanely uncomfortable because the water was filled and I do mean filled with krill, tiny shrimp like animals that absolutely love dive lights. It [...]

Zebra Moray Is The Shyest Of Morays

Apart from being rare, hard to find & beautiful, the Zebra Moray is also annoyingly bashful, preferring to spend it time hiding from anything even remotely resembling a camera or scuba diver. Here in Phuket, where I found this one, we see them very very rarely, there is no dive site we can conclusiv [...]
