Weekly Dose of Woah #39 [August 28, 2019]

Seahorse giving birth

Seahorses are a pretty trippy species.

Not only do they have a unique body shape, unlike any other underwater creature, but their biological sex responsibilities are different from almost every other species on the planet.

Male seahorses are the ones that give birth.

If that wasn’t enough, the give birth to hundreds of babies at a time.

The sight is quite woah-worthy:

A male seahorse giving birth. The event of interest happens around 1:20.
