The rare Pontohi pygmy seahorse is a species that can be frequently seen by scuba divers and underwater macro photographers when visiting our resort and dive center. The name Pontohi pygmy seahorse was derived from an Indonesian dive guide named Hence Pontoh.
Hippocampus pontohi has a white or yellow color with typical red or pinkish markings. They live in the reef and are very active. This seahorse can reach a size of 1.7 cm.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
