First-Ever Sighting of a Baby Seahorse in British Waters


A tiny baby seahorse was measured off the coast of Dorset, England.

It must have been like finding a needle in a haystack, but somehow, in murky water conditions, diver Neil Garrick-Maidment, the executive director of the Seahorse Trust, spotted a single 1.5-inch-long female baby seahorse “clinging onto a piece of seagrass” off the coast of Studland, Dorset — a finding so rare he said it was “akin to seeing a yeti in the wild.”
