Ninguna ciencia, en cuanto a ciencia, engaña; el engaño está en quien no sabe.

Banded pipefish (Dunckerocampus dactyliophorus)
This little fish is a species of fish in the Syngnathidae (seahorses and pipefish) family. It is widespread throughout the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region, Red Sea included. It has a straight, elongated body which reaches a maximum length of 19 cm. Similar to other seahorses and pipefishes, the male banded pipefish is equipped with a specialised brood pouch, rather than the female. The female deposits her eggs in the male’s pouch, where they develop. The male later gives birth.
