In this part of the world, pygmy seahorses are one of the great joys of diving. But they are almost always found on sea fans that are known to house pygmies by knowedgeable guides with keen eyes My eyes are not so keen, but nevertheless, I FOUND ONE! On a random sea fan. A half inch of perfect camouflage.
I think I’ll name it George.
I feel I might have bruised my guide’s ego by finding George on a fan that he only glanced at. Every sea fan on each subsequent dive was inspected thoroughly!
