This video below features a rare footage of a male pregnant seahorse giving birth at the ocean floor. Yes, you heard me right! Even though almost all species on earth have females giving birth to their off springs, in seahorses it is the responsibility of a male. When seahorses mate, the female seahorse deposits her eggs inside the male’s pouch and the eggs fertilizes inside it. But after giving birth to their off springs, female seahorse is the one who takes care of them.
Clayton and Meagan, spotted a pregnant White seahorse while conducting a research with conservation group Project Seahorse at the eastern coast of Australia. According to the scientists, it is very rare to watch and even capture seahorse giving birth in the wild. But these researchers were able to witness something so incredible and even get it on their camera. They used GoPro cameras to capture this wonderful miracle of nature.
