7 Unique Facts About Sea Horse

kuda laut

Seahorse is a type of sea fish that is often found in tropical waters. But now this beautiful animal is threatened with extinction because it is used as a traditional medicine by humans. If at first glance this animal does not look like a fish, but experts have agreed to classify it as a fish because of its characteristics that breathe with gills and fins to swim. Here are the unique facts about seahorses that we have summarized.

1 | The period of pregnancy and childbirth is experienced by the male seahorse.

Reproduction of seahorse is very unique and different from most other fish species. In the marine season, the female seahorse injects the egg into the sac that is on the chest of a male seahorse. The egg will undergo a fertilization process for 10 to 6 weeks until the sea foal is ready to be born. In one process the conception of a seahorse can produce about 1500 eggs.

2 | One of the world's most voracious animals.

Almost every time the seahorse eat the plankton around it. This is because the process of digestion of seahorses is very fast. It was as though the incoming food was only briefly filtered inside her. He does not even have stomach and teeth. In a day the seahorse can eat 3000 artemias in the water.

3 | The only fish that has physical characteristics.

Researchers have agreed to incorporate seahorses into fish because the seahorses breathe gills and use their fins to swim. But there is some other uniqueness that makes it, unlike fish. Seahorses have no scales and erect body shapes that make them trouble in swimming. They are very dependent on their tail to hold corals or grass in order not to drift in the swift stream of water.

4 | Have eyes and skin like a chameleon.

Seahorses and chameleons alike have independent eyes, meaning that between the right and left eyes work on their own so they can see 360 degrees around. Just like chameleons, seahorses are very good at camouflage. Some types of seahorses are able to change their skin color to resemble the circumstances and some other species are born to have the same skin color as coral reefs so it is difficult for predators to find it.

5 | Seahorses swim vertically

Sea seahorse is a fish with poor swimming ability. His upright body does not allow him to swim agile in horizontal directions. However, the ability to camouflage a very good seahorse can keep it safe from the predator.

6 | Sea horse animal that is faithful to his partner

Seahorses belong to monogamous animals. This means they will only marry for one partner only. When they marry then they have decided to live together until both of them die.

7 | It has 54 species in the world.

Seahorses have 54 species that have been found with a length of 1 to 14 inches. The spread of this fish includes the tropical and subtropical waters of the world. The largest number of species found in Australia and Southeast Asia region including our country. Due to its low reproductive abilities and including monogamous animals as well as massive exploitation by humans, the existence of seahorse is now threatened with extinction.

12 Interesting Facts about Saturn


For those who like astronomy would have been familiar in the ear. Yes, the planet Saturn is a planet that has additional accessories in the form of a thin ring that circles the planet's sphere. At night the planet is a golden yellow light that if we look through the telescope it will be clearly displayed ring that surrounds it. Surely you are curious and know more about the planet Saturn. Let's see the facts of planet saturnus following:

1 | Saturn is the only planet that has a ring.
Actually, other planets also have small invisible rings like Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. But among the planets that have the widest and clearest rings are Saturn.

2 | Saturn rings are made of meteorite rocks.
This meteorite is very numerous and countless, in addition to meteorites in the form of stones, there is also the form of ice. They orbit around Saturn at varying speeds so that there are collisions between them.

3 | Saturn's rings are very thin.
Although thin, it's still visible from the earth because this collection of rocks can reflect sunlight with a mirror. The size of this ring thickness is only 1 kilometer very thin as paper when compared to the size of the planet.

4 | We can't stand on the surface of Saturn.
Why? Because Saturn itself is a gas planet. Saturn is often called Gas Giant with its main constituents Hydrogen and Helium. Therefore if we try to land we will sink to the core of the planet.

5 | The day in Saturn is shorter than earth.
If we land on this planet then from sunrise to drown will take place faster only 10 hours 39 minutes. This is due to the rapid rotation speed of the planet Saturn.

6 | The years in Saturn are very long.
If the other day in Saturn is as fast as it does in a matter of years. Because 1 year in Saturn equals 30 years according to earth time. What causes the length of the year of the planet is the distance Saturn is far from the sun so it takes a long time to circle the sun.

7 | The wind in Saturn moves faster than the tornado wind.
If tornadoes on earth only maximum speed of 483 km/hour. The wind in Saturn is 4 times, exactly 1800 km/hour. With that speed, whatever it passes, must be flat to the ground.


8 | Saturn has been visited by several spacecraft.
Saturn has been visited by 4 spacecraft or unmanned aircraft. The first rides were Pionner 11 which was launched in 1979, after which the voyager was in 1980. Followed by voyager 2 of 1981's last Cassini in 2004 and still orbiting up to now.

9 | The name Saturn means the peasant god.
The name saturnus itself is taken from the name of the ancient Roman god who likes to farm and grow crop he is also the father of the god Jupiter. Symbol of Saturn is a sickle that commonly used for cultivation.

10 | Saturn's largest natural satellite is the titan.
Titan is the largest satellite in Saturn and the largest number 2 in the solar system after its satellite Ganymede Jupiter. Uniquely these satellites have a planet-like atmosphere, this makes the titan the only natural satellite that has the atmosphere in the solar system.

11 | The planet Saturn is shaped as the most oblong planet.
Because the rotation is very strong and fast to make the equator balloon bubble while the area of pole increasingly flattened. Just imagine the rotational speed up to 6200 miles per hour, faster than earth.

hexagonal clouds

12 | Hexagonal clouds in the planet's north pole saturnus.
This cloud was first discovered from images taken by the Voyager spacecraft. Shaped hexagon with the diameter of each side reaches 13800 km. A lot of speculation about the formation of this cloud. Some scientists consider it a fixed wave flow pattern in the atmosphere.

7 Strangest Atmospheric Phenomena

The atmosphere is the world we live in today with all kinds of gas in it. The atmosphere is important for survival especially for land and air creatures. Without the atmosphere, we will die exposed to various cosmic radiation. The atmosphere enveloped the earth to a height of 10,000 km, more than that all just a space vacuum space. In the vastness of the atmosphere we live in, of course, many phenomena occur. Some of the phenomena that occur may seem strange and rarely seen.

7 | Mamatus Clouds


This cloud resembles a collection of breasts that hang in the sky. It is true in Latin, Mammatus, or mammatocumulus itself means a cloud of the breast. For the first time to see it must feel strange because it is very rare this phenomenon appears in the sky of Indonesia. This phenomenon usually appears in western countries such as America and Canada. According to the local community, mamatus clouds can be a sign of a tornado, so this phenomenon is often feared by the public. This cloud is also dangerous for the flight, therefore the aircraft should avoid this type of cloud.

6 | Fata Morgana


This phenomenon is an optical illusion that occurs in the field, in the sea, or in the polar ice field. For example when sand or on pavement we see puddles, or when we see the ship floating in the sky. The main cause of this illusion is the difference in atmospheric air temperature. Air temperature produces a different density then the reflection of light from an object will turn before it reaches our eyes. Some fata morgana is even complex and strange shapes such as a collection of distorted images and so on, depending on how dynamic the condition of the atmosphere is.

5 | Light Pillars

light pillars

This phenomenon is very beautiful, where visible colorful light pillars towering sky. Light pillar only occurs in areas that have cold weather. A cold atmosphere containing ice crystals causes light to be reflected vertically. The reflected light source can be from the sun during sunset, moon or man-made lights. The larger the ice crystals the more obvious the phenomenon is seen. Actually, it's like an optical illusion, the light pillar is not right under the light source, but relative to the observer, as we see the reflection of light on the surface of the water.

4 | Green Flash Light

green flash

This light is often seen in seconds before sunset (sunset). The green light will appear above the horizon, but once the sun sets, the light disappears. Generally, this phenomenon takes place very shortly. This phenomenon is usually seen on beaches that have clear horizon views. The cause of this phenomenon is the refraction of sunlight by the atmosphere. The change of light waves causes the light to split into green color. The phenomenon of green light flashes only occurs when the air condition is calm and stable so as not to break the sunlight that goes into the eyes of the observer.

3 | Lighting Ball


When generally lightning shaped light like roots, this phenomenon actually raises lightning in the form of lightning balls. Somehow it can happen, the cause of this lightning balls phenomenon is still a debate among scientists. These lightning balls often occur when the rainstorms accompanied by lightning, then lightning is separated into a lightning bolt. Lightning balls can be 1 to several meters in diameter slowly creeping. It is said that if this lightning burst it will cause severe damage to surrounding objects. On July 10, 2011, a 2-meter lightning bolt hit the emergency office at Liberec, Czech Republic. The ball entered through the window and reflected in the room until it disappeared. After that, all electronic equipment is heavily damaged.

2 | Night Rainbow

Really strange, generally the rainbow is seen in the daytime but this rainbow even appeared at night. How did it happen? Apparently, the main cause is the moonlight. The rainbows that appear at night are caused by the refraction of the moonlight by the water spots in the atmosphere. This rainbow is also called rainbow of the moon or moonbows. When the full moon or full moon then the moonlight will reach the peak of its brightness, this Light makes the rainbow more visible. Rainbows often appear in damp places, such as in a waterfall or when the rain is spattered.

1 | Rain Fish

Hujan Ikan

This is the strangest phenomenon of atmosphere ever, Rain that scatters millions of fresh fish from the sky. Could these fish live in the clouds or are they marine animals that are brought together as water evaporates into the sky. It seems unlikely, but this phenomenon has really happened in many parts of the world, the latest report took place in Mumbai India 12 July 2016. The only plausible explanation is that the fish at sea is sucked by waterspout </ i> > or water tornado. The power of this tornado allows water and all living things in it to be sucked up and lifted up into the clouds. Then a strong wind carried and threw it on the nearest land until it finally rained the fish. In addition to fish, there has also been rained frogs and tadpoles in Japan.

Nicolas de Staël, Rise and Fall Artist

Le Concert

The previous evening he had been to a symphony concert at the Pleyel Hall in Paris. Inspired by the music he had canceled the rest of his stay in Paris and raced back through the night to his studio overlooking the ramparts of the old town of Antibes, desperate to capture the images while they were still fresh in his mind. He started work on the painting as soon as he got home, and without stopping for food or rest, worked feverishly at the vast canvas until further work was made impossible by the failing light. It was to be his last painting.

As darkness fell he turned his back on the unfinished painting, wrote three letters, burned his sketches for all future projects, walked to the window of his studio, and jumped into the rue de Revely, four floors below. Late that evening, a neighbor walking her dog found his twisted body. He had died instantly, at the age of 41. It was March 16, 1955. The artist’s name was Nicolas de Staël.

At that time he was approaching the peak of his success. He had held major exhibitions in Paris, London, and New York, and was preparing for one in Antibes later in the year.

His life story reads like a Mills and Boone novel. He was born in St. Petersburg in December 1913, the son of a Russian baron on the staff of Tsar Nicholas II. In 1918, to escape the Bolshevik Revolution, the family fled to Poland, where, within a few years, both of his parents died, leaving him an orphan at the age of nine. He and his sisters were placed in the care of a Russian family in Brussels.

Nicolas de Staël

Nicolas de Staël traveled continuously for the rest of his life, studying painting in Belgium, Holland, and Paris, and visiting the great museums of Spain and Italy. In Morocco at the beginning of World War II, he joined the French Foreign Legion.

He returned to France after demobilization, and by the end of the war was living in the rue Boissy d’Anglas in Nice. During the occupation life of an impoverished immigrant was hard and he supported his sick wife, Jeannine, and her son by working as a furniture polisher.

In 1946, following Jeannine’s death in childbirth, he continued his travels, dabbling in sculpture and tapestry, but always returning to painting. Despite his peripatetic lifestyle, his work rate was frenzied, his output prolific, and his range eclectic. Impressed by a football match between France and Sweden at the Parc des Princes, he created a series of works called Les Footballeurs; after hearing the New Orleans clarinetist Sydney Bechet playing jazz in Antibes, he created his collection Les Musiciens de Jazz, Souvenir de Sydney Bechet. In 1953 he rented the apartment in the rue de Revely, facing the Mediterranean in old Antibes.

Like so many artists before him, Nicolas de Staël was enchanted by the light and colors of the Côte d’Azur. Antibes, its harbor and beaches, its Fort Carré and its incessant marine traffic featured prominently in his later works, but he brought to them his own unique style. Although his work contains elements of a number of twentieth-century‘ isms’, it defies precise classification. It is abstract, but never loses sight of its original inspiration. (He once said, ‘a painting should be abstract as well as figurative’). Although unmistakeably modern, his work reveals echoes of Russian icons and the mosaics of medieval Italy. De Staël’s technique was energetic, with pure, powerful colors and strong, oil-heavy brush strokes (when he died he had an outstanding bill for 5,000 Euros for paint). A giant in every sense – he stood a gaunt one meter ninety (6 feet 3 inches) tall – he preferred huge canvasses. This last painting measures six meters by three meters fifty.

That painting is called Le Concert, and I have a print of it on my wall. It shows, against a striking Tuscan Red background, some music stands and scattered sheets of music. But its main features are a grand piano and a double bass – the two instruments that are usually left on stage when the concert is over. It is almost as if he were leaving a final message.

You can see Le Concert at the Chateau Grimaldi in Antibes, where, until October 16, 2005, the Picasso museum is dedicated to a retrospective view of the work of its former neighbor, Nicolas de Staël, whose brief but meteoric career ended so tragically 50 years ago, just a few meters away.
