For as long as I can remember I have seen picture of tropical creatures from far off places the most iconic of which were seahorses. So when a pacific sea horse turned up in San Diego a few weeks ago I made the trip to go find the little guy. Apparently he warm water persuaded a pair to slip out of the protecting of San Diego Bay and into the surrounding waters. Here is a little video and photos of the findings.
We tried not to take too much video or too many pictures because the seahorse has no eyelids and the bright video lights and flashes could blind or at least be disturb the poor little guy. So the video is short but still was a great experience.
