Believe it or not, the slightly bizarre but much-loved seahorse is officially classified as a fish by marine biologists.
But whereas most fish use their tails to swim through the water, the seahorse is not a great swimmer.
So instead he uses his monkey-like tail to hold onto floating seaweed and debris in order to 'catch rides' for long distances across the ocean.
This pretty sterling silver necklace features a seahorse with realistic features and spiny textures enhanced by a dramatic antique finish.
