Seahorses aren’t as committed as previously thought

Male seahorses take commitment seriously, famously going so far as to release their partners from the burden of pregnancy by taking it on themselves. Scientists have generally assumed that female seahorses are just as devoted. A recent study, however, shows that their commitment is shakier than initially thought. When subjected to episodes of forced separation, female seahorses will often take the opportunity to choose a different partner, even when given the option of reuniting with their former mate.
