The Seahorse which she sells from the seashell shop in Morro Bay that is. Actually the owner is a he but the clerk was a she. Too bad as the owner will take a few bucks off. Just make it an even whatever. Morro Bay Shell Shop that is.
Anyway seahorses are fish even though they seem to have an exoskeleton it is actually an endoskeleton with the skin stretched tightly over it. They have un-fishlike characteristics like a prehensile tail but they are indeed fish.
Seahorses like this used to be just a couple bucks but the price has gone up a bit. Rules and regulations I suppose. Live ones much more expensive about $60.
Last photo has it hanging about its new seashell friends.
