Seahorses vary in size, according to their species and can range from 1.5 to 14 inches (3.8 to 36 cm).  They feed on crustacean plankton.  Because seahorses are not very good swimmers, they move around by hovering or slowly gliding from place to place.  Seahorses acquired their name both because of their resemblance to horses and because of their unusual vertically-oriented (head up and tail down) posture.
