Tiny seahorse from Indonesia in top 10 new species


Scientists just announced top 10 new species, including a tiny seahorse found in waters off Indonesia. They were selected from thousands of nature’s newcomers by the International Institute for Species Exploration at the Arizona State University (ASU) and an international committee of taxonomists.

Slightly larger and more consumer-friendly is the tiny seahorse (Hippocampus satomiae) found near off Derawan Island off Kalimantan, Indonesia which measures just over a centimeter in height and length.
