Seahorses are beautiful little creatures. Humans should leave them alone!
One of the deadliest creatures in the ocean? NO! Sharks and others are much more deadly to other creatures in the ocean.

Beautiful lil creatures. Disgusting but no great surprise to learn that China once again is to blame 4 it's inevitable demise. The only way any creature stands a chance of survival here on land in our waters---is if China ceases to exist. Chinese medicine is killing off all our precious animals. A damn bloody shame. Thanks

Pretty cute. Thing is ferrets don't smell as sweet and clean as a cat. Maybe these two will smell …
