The Seahorse is a unique breed of sealife which can be captured at the ocean's edge in all three current installments of the Animal Crossing series. It sells quite well for it's size and makes a nice tank pet to decorate your home with.


[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Seahorse:

[edit] Animal Forest e+

"タツノオ卜シゴを つりあげた! こども ドラゴン!"

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I caught a Seahorse! Baby Dragon!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a seahorse! Giddy up! YEE HAW!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught a seahorse! Nay? Yay!"

[edit] Menu

This is what the meny will say when you catch the Seahorse:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

They look like reptiles, but are in fact, fish. The female lays her eggs in the male's stomach.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

The female lays her eggs on the male. It's his responsibility from then on.

[edit] Museum

This is what Blathers will say when you donate this fish:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I can't think of a soul who claims to have eaten a meal of seahorse. However, it has been used for centuries as an herbal supplement, that I know. A supplement for what, I haven't the foggiest."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"This creature is covered in hard scales that suggest a relation to crabs or shrimp, but it's a proper fish. That said, it's a dreadful swimmer and can't usually move against powerful currents, eh wot? In such environments, the sea horse will cling to kelp and stay there until the waters calm a bit... Seeing those little fellows holding on for dear life makes me want to cheer them on! Cling, sea horse!"

[edit] Trivia

  • As one of the odder-looking fish in the ocean, the Seahorse is often mistaken for belonging to the reptile family, while in reality it does not.

[edit] Real Life

The Spiny Seahorse

The Seahorse is one of the most popular breed of fish to keep as pets as they add just the right atmosphere to one's fish tank community. In reproduction, the male keeps the eggs safe in a pouch on it's body after the female has laid them there.

[edit] Appearance

Seahorses come in various colours, but for the sake of Animal Crossing, it's skin is mostly red with support fins on it's backside and a curved tail at the end of it's body in order to keep balance in the water.
