Deep Blue is one of the seahorses that Rog Hanson is studying. Carolyn Cole / Los Angeles Times (LATimes. Click for the story)

No snark today, the jerk birds can wait. Today we got Seahorses:

“Retired teacher Rog Hanson has probably spent more time with Pacific seahorses than anyone on Earth — so much that he’s even built them a secret seahorse city off Long Beach’s industrial shoreline. Hanson can tell you exactly how many times he’s seen them (997), who is dating whom, and describe their personalities with intimate familiarity. Bathsheba is stoic, Daphne a runner. Deep Blue is chill. Interacting with the almost otherworldly creatures, he says, has made him a better human being. “On land I’m very C-minus, but underwater, I’m Mensa.”
