Colouring sheet – Seahorse
What colour is a seahorse? The answer to this question is very exciting if you have colouring supplies and curiosity to learn facts about these mysterious sea creatures. Male and female seahorses have different colours, but they can change colours to match their background. Which means you can print the colouring sheet many times, and colour each seahorse differently. You can draw your backgrounds to match the colour of your seahorse.
Did you know Seahorses are actually fish? They breathe through gills, but they’re poor swimmers because of their body shape and the absence of fins that help fish to swim. The crown on the head of a seahorse is unique to each individual, just like human fingerprints. Discover more amazing facts about seahorses.
