  1. pipefish

    Pipefish are small, elongated marine fish that belong to the same family as seahorses (Syngnathidae). They are characterized by their long, slender bodies covered in bony plates and reduced fins. Their bodies are tube-like (which gives them their name) and their jaws are formed into a long, thin, pipe-like snout. Some species of pipefish also have the ability to change their color to blend into their surroundings, making them excellent at camouflage. The males are usually the ones responsible for child-rearing, as they carry the eggs in a special brood pouch until they hatch.
