Seahorse Weathervane – With Grasses

Seahorse Weather Vane with Grasses (Hippocampus)


The Seahorse Weather Vane, Hippocampus of the family Syngnathidae, featured in this image consists of a copper Seahorse and coral with a brass sea floor. Because our vanes are crafted individually, the choice of metals can be modified at the time your order is placed.

The Seahorse featured here has eyes are made from translucent emerald colored glass jewels. People who order this weather vane get to choose the eye color they want for their weather vane. If you like Seahorses, we offer another design with two Seahorses and a clamshell.

Seahorses range in size from 0.6 to 14 in (1.5 to 35.5 cm). They are named for their equine appearance. Although they are bony fish, they do not have scales but rather thin skin stretched over a series of bony plates, which are arranged in rings throughout their body. Each species has a distinct number of rings.

Seahorses swim upright, a characteristic that is not shared by their close pipefish relatives, who swim horizontally. Razorfish are the only other fish that swim vertically like a seahorse. Unusual among fish, seahorses have a flexible, well-defined neck. They also sport a coronet on the head, which is distinct for each individual.
