A marine biologist says it’s the first time he’s ever seen a long-snouted seahorse in the wild.

A long-snouted seahorse has been photographed off the coast of Plymouth, south west UK.

Also known as a spiny seahorse, the protected marine animal can be found in shallow waters among seagrass meadows, though a licence is needed to look for them.

Diver Mark Parry from the Ocean Conservation Trust recounts his sighting.
