A new species of seahorse has been discovered in a region of the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, which is bounded by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico, which is often referred to as the Bermuda Triangle.  A small colony has been discovered, and has been given the name Hippocampus aprilfooleri.    This species The new discovery is very "dragon-like" in appearance, and should not be confused with other "sea dragons" of the genera Phycodurus and Phyllopteryx. Pictured are juvenile and adult specimens.
