Description

A female seen within 200m of 2 other sea horses, one being a pregnant male approximately 150m away in distance and 7 meters deeper than this indivudal. Found feeding, became quite animated upon being observed, attempted temporary swimming followed by playing dead and repeating the process again, making measuring length especially tricky.
