Happy Father’s Day!

This wonderful picture is by Paul Zahl from the NGS Image Collection and is included in a series on the National Geographic website in honour of Father's Day.

The article is called "Best Animal Dads" and I'm happy to see that the seahorse is the first featured father!

As you will know if you're a regular visitor to The Seahorse Shop, the male seahorse is a great father because he actually carries the fertilized eggs from the female and gives birth to live babies. In our family the seahorse is the symbol of my husband being a wonderful dad to our daughter and is the inspiration for this website.
