  • While there have been many anecdotal reports of sounds produced by Hippocampus seahorses, little is known about the mechanisms of sound production. We investigated clicking sounds produced during feeding strikes in H. zosterae and H. erectus. Descriptions of head morphology support the idea that feeding clicks may represent stridulatory sounds produced by a bony articulation between the supraoccipital ridge of the neurocranium and the grooved anterior margin of the coronet. Analysis of high… CONTINUE READING
