Perhaps the most interesting of the animal kingdom fathers, male seahorses actually give birth to their own young! No, you didn’t read that wrong, it’s true! The male seahorses have a pouch on their stomach where the females deposit their eggs, and the male carries them for 45 days until they are ready to be born. These awesome fathers can even experience contractions as they are giving birth!
