Hipposampus Pipefish

The Hipposampus Pipefish comes from the family as Sea Horses, a family of fishes with a body encased in a hard armour. This means that they use the dorsal fin as a means of propulsion. The Pipefish use it for slow movements, with the pectoral fin vibrated to keep the fish steady, but the Pipefish are able to wriggle their long slim bodies to escape predators.
