In the spotlight

This is a seahorse. They are small animals and existing in many species, some of them are smaller then one cent. They are much vulnerable, because are bad and slow swimmer, so the only way to defend itself is the camouflage. They are mostly on corals or sponges with the same color, so they are invisible to their hunter.
