Pygmy Seahorses: Masters of Camouflage

If you were to ask me “Hey Joe, what are pygmy seahorses masters of?" then of course my answer would be "CUTENESS!!!" I had no idea that they were also connoisseurs of camo.

But scientists had never asked how these diminutive deceivers were able to match their knobby host corals so closely. This video, the first in a new series called Deep Look from KQED, tells the story of how California Academy of Sciences researchers put their adorable little hiding ability to the test. 

The results are not only an awesome bit of science, the close-up shots of this micro-marine world are just beautiful to behold. 

Also, BABY PYGMY SEAHORSES.

This new YouTube series looks like it’s gonna be really cool! Check out Deep Look.
