Sea Horse, Marineland of the Pacific

The Amazing Sea Horse
Marineland of the Pacific

"Cute" is the word by which visitors to the Oceanarium Jewel tanks most often describe these sea animals, which usually propel themselves through the water standing upright.  Before birth, sea horse babies are carried by their papa in a pouch below his abdomen.

Marineland of the Pacific was a public oceanarium and tourist attraction located in Los Angeles County, California. It was also known as Hanna-Barbera's Marineland during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Marineland operated from 1954 until 1987, when it was purchased by the owners of SeaWorld, San Diego. The new owners moved the popular killer whales and other animals to their San Diego facility and abruptly closed down Marineland.
