Variable colors; often with many brown spots and tiny white dots, especially on tail; long, thick snout; narrow body. A delicate species for experienced seahorse keepers only. The Brazilian Seahorse may be on the brink of extinction in the wild. Like all captive-bred seahorses, these are best sourced directly from their breeders.
