Introducing Pygmy seahorse and its' mascot figure. Do they look alike??

A little fact of Pygmy seahorse, according to wikipedia:

The pygmy seahorses comprise several species of tiny seahorse in the syngnathid family or Syngnathidae (seahorses and pipefish). Family Syngnathidae is part of order Syngnathiformes, which contains fishes with fused jaws that suck food into tubular mouths. They are found in Southeast Asia in the Coral Triangle area. They are some of the smallest seahorse species in the world, typically measuring less than 2 centimetres (0.79 in) in height.
This tiny pygmy seahorse was spotted by the instructor during recent dive in Sipadan. It is so tiny and well camouflaged. I could hardly see it without later on spot it from the picture.
