The seahorse is actually a very odd looking bony fish that has a prehensile tail and small horse-like face. These strange features help seahorses survive, their long snouts help them capture food, and their tails help keep them from drifting away in the current, as they are not very good swimmers. Stranger still, seahorses are one of the very few species in which the male gives birth to their young, called fry.
So bring your own small fry down to the Kidseum this weekend and let them create their very own silly seahorse in our glow cave!
Included with Kidseum admission -- $8 for everyone over the age of 2 years old.
