“The seahorse is a true fish, even though it looks and acts most unfishlike. Its scientific name is Hippocampus. This word comes from the Greek hippos, meaning horse, and kampos, or kampe, meaning monster or worm. This description fits the little fish very well. Its head looks just like a small horse, and the long tail resembles the body of a mythical sea monster.” text: Lilo Hess, “Sea Horses,” Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1966. image: Seahorse, Hippocampus erectus: Lined Seahorse.jpgmariculturetechnology.com Title: William Blake, “The Tyger,” Songs of Experience, Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 1991 (originally published, 1789)
