Footage Has Been Captured For Male Seahorse Giving Birth To Its baby

Okay, this is something new. We just discovered a very rare footage of a male seahorse that was filmed giving birth in the wild.

The pregnant White seahorse (or a male seahorse) was spotted by Clayton and Meagan while they were doing their research for the conservation group Project Seahorse. According to scientists the sight of the male seahorse giving birth is very rare to catch. In the video below you will see all of the mesmerizing sight of the delivery. Qualmish viewers be warned that you may find this disgusting or cringy.

When it comes to seahorse it is actually the male gender that gives birth to the babies by fertilizing the female eggs. The process is explained at Mom.me as, 'Although the male carries the eggs, he doesn't make them. After a male and female seahorse spend time courting, the female deposits her eggs inside the male's pouch.

He fertilizes the eggs inside the pouch. His pouch is a complex organ that regulates temperature, blood flow and water salinity for the eggs as they hatch so the babies are as prepared as possible for life in the ocean. Depending on the species, seahorses can deliver from five to more than 1,000 babies at a time."

The research team is on the mission to learn what factors of the sea and sea life contribute to the well being of these creatures.
