It is not your average Father's Day meal, but these seahorses will take it.
Sigourney Bain, a Seahorse Keeper at the Tennessee Aquarium, says, "Yep, some live mysid shrimp, which they enjoy chasing around."
You might be asking why these little guys are so deserving of this feast.
Well, there is a good reason, male seahorses actually carry their babies and give birth.
Shane Davis, a father, says, "No, first time I've ever heard of it."
Davis and his son were pretty much speechless when we told them.
Bain adds, "They'll entwine their tails and they'll do a little dance along the bottom, and once they're ready to deposit their eggs, they'll both start to rise towards the top."
And that is where the female will deposit her eggs into the males pouch.
Twenty to thirty days later, Bain says, "They do sort of a thrusting motion, and it makes the male seahorses look like their in a little bit of distress, but it's really a way of pushing them out."
We are not just talking about one baby, we are talking about hundreds.
Now, we asked Davis what he thought if the roles were reversed.
Davis adds, "I don't know, that would be pretty demanding."
Suddenly, life does not seem so hard.
The fathers we spoke with say give these guys the all you can eat shrimp buffet because they are definitely working up an appetite.
