    New Delhi (Sputnik): Unlike most species, male seahorses are the child-bearers. Seahorses also carry their babies in a pouch instead of growing it in a uterus.

    Male seahorses can give birth to thousands of babies at once and a video of one such father is going viral on Twitter. A seahorse, which is in an aquarium, can be seen giving birth to numerous babies in one go from its pouch, which some netizens have compared to sneezing babies from its stomach. 

    ​Very few baby seahorses survive because they are on their own once out of the pouch. Seahorses do not raise their babies, resulting in the off-spring not getting any protection. The video has already garnered more than 700,000 views.
