As I've mentioned previously on this blog, we occasionally find seahorses at Ocraocke, sometimes swimming in Pamlico Sound, sometimes washed up on the ocean beach. According the the BBC, "The seahorse is one the slowest swimming fish we know of, but it's able to capture prey that swim at incredible speeds."
