For the first time, scientists have the secrets to one of the world's most recognizable and unique, but least understood fish – the seahorse. Researchers have out the genetic code of the Southeast Asian tiger tail seahorse. They now the genetic map of all of its DNA. This means scientists can out a lot more about this sea creature than before. They can now to out why seahorses are so different to other fish. Unlike other fish, seahorses have no teeth. Another difference the male brooding of their young - male seahorses babies and birth to them instead of females. In addition, seahorses do not swim horizontally like other fish; they vertically (up and down).

Scientists from Germany’s University of Konstanz and others from China and Singapore to the genome of the tiger tail seahorse. A genome a map of all the genes and genetic information in a cell or organism. Seahorses started to from other fish about 100 million years ago. They to take on their unusual shape, which a horse. There a total of 54 species of seahorse. Its scientific name is Hippocampus. The word 'Hippocampus' from the Ancient Greek word hippos meaning 'horse' and kampos meaning 'sea monster'. The word 'seahorse' can also be as two separate words (sea horse), or with a dash between the two words (sea-horse).
