A Goa fisherman saw something that surprised scientists!

Scientists were surprised by what a Goa fisherman found in the Zuari bay! It was a tiny seahorse. Seahorses are very rare in Indian waters. They come from the far east.

The small sea creature that was caught was very young and just around 4 inches. It has been given to the Indian Council of Agricultural Research at Old Goa. They will be studying it to identify whether it’s a Hippocampus mohnikei (Japanese sea horse) or not. These species are pros in camouflaging themselves.
