Have you ever seen a seahorse? Seahorses are fish. They live in water, breathe through gills, and have a swim bladder. However, they do not have caudal fins and have a long snake-like tail. They also have a neck and a snout that points down. You may have ever seen seahorses in cartoons, in aquariums, or in the ocean.

Continue the tail line you drew earlier. Draw the rest as a spiral and a straight line.

Draw them along the back of the fish, using short rounded lines.
