Promiscuous and bisexual – the faithful seahorse has a secret sex life!

“Seahorses may be graceful and elegant but the idea that they are monogamous and mate for life is just a myth, according to research.

A study indicates that the sea creatures are promiscuous, flighty and more than a little bit gay – none more so than the Australian seahorse. And unlike human rules of attraction, it was the members of the Hippocampus genus with the biggest bellies that attracted the most partners.”

There goes the fabled monogamy of seahorses!… I’ll revisit this after work (or whenever I get the urge).
