The dazzling world of seahorses

Science journalist and author Till Hein from Berlin reads from his latest "mare" non-fiction book "Crazy Horse" and presents exciting research findings and anecdotes about the only animals in the world where the males get pregnant.

Graceful dancers, masters of camouflage and romantic lovers, but also hard of hearing wolverines, moody curmudgeons and slow lazybones: seahorses are all that and more. The little fish are not only found in seagrass meadows and mangrove forests, but also in chess games and Greek legends - and how did they end up on children's swimsuits, coins and toilet bowls from ancient Rome? What makes them first-class hunters despite their sluggishness, why is an area of the brain named after them, how can they help us sleep better and even inspire robotics? In an entertaining and informative way, Till Hein, who also works for the "Neue Zürcher Zeitung", the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung" and "Das Magazin", talks about curious findings from current research, gets to the bottom of myths and reveals secrets about the bizarre horses of the sea.
