Random knowledge

Did you know that seahorses are the only animals where the male carries the female’s fertilized eggs until they hatch?

I wonder if Anthony knows that.

Because this afternoon, when he was sitting on the couch with a ball up his shirt and I looked at him with raised eyebrows, he said matter-of-factly, “I’m a daddy seahorse. And I’m going to have a baby.”



  1. Don’t penguin daddies guard the eggs, too? I mean, they don’t CARRY them, but they do balance them on their cute webbed feet. Right? (Cause I could totally be wrong on that.)

    Anthony is brilliant and may one day pwn the world.

  2. Yes, male penguins do guard the eggs. But male seahorses actually carry fertilized eggs in a pouch. Either way, they both deserve props 🙂

  3. Please blog every day ‘cos every story makes me smile! ( and I know theres an “anthonyism”every day )
