Here's my entry for the BreyerFest 2021 Best Customs Contest. He's a different take on the mythical hippocampus, with bony armor (like his smaller seahorse cousins) and leafy appendages (like sea dragons). The Reef Hippocampus also has a a tail fin and finned forelegs to help him move and navigate around the coral reefs and seagrass meadows he inhabits. The Reef Hippocampus protects the reef by keeping it free of seaweed, his favorite foodstuff! These majestic, mythical sea creatures were revered in Greek and Roman mythology.
