Amazing Anilao: Macro Haven
Anilao has been hailed globally as the world's capital of macro life and pygmy seahorses such as this one ((Hippocampus bargibanti) can be found as shallow as 40ft.
A pygmy seahorse is a fascinating creature. It is as small as half a grain of rice and mimics the appearance of the fan corals it lives in.
