🐠 Aquatic Life ​As in all seahorses and pipefish, male pygmy seahorses (Hippocampus bargibanti) incubate their young in pouches, complete with placentas. Females lay their eggs into the male’s brood pouch, where they’re fertilized and kept safe until the little ones are ready to be born.

We are the local embodiment of a Cosmos grown to self-awareness. We have begun to contemplate our origins: starstuff pondering the stars; organized assemblages of ten billion billion billion atoms considering the evolution of atoms; tracing the long journey by which, here at least, consciousness arose. Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth. Our obligation to survive is owed not just to ourselves but also to that Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring.

Carl Sagan, Cosmos (1980)
