Hippocamp by StressedJenny Hippocamp by StressedJenny
More fantasy pet post it notes. This time a Hippocamp. Always wanted to doodle one of these as its part of the Cardiff coat of arms. The other mascot's a goat, which isn't that impressive to be honest, but hey, it has a hard time competing with a fish horse. [link]



Good old post it notes, there for doodlin'.

I don't know why I espected this to be titled sea horse. Heh, it's actually well done. Though, freaked me out a little since I've never seen one or even knew they were a mythical creature. Awesome drawing. :)

Why not just call it a seahorse? :giggle: That IS what it is! :D Even the Latin species name is Hippocampus for the seahorse! It must be hard to swim with hooves like that......and that is probably what our Hippocamp is trying to figure out...."How do I swim with these things?"

ok to clear things up. there is a mythical creature that is half horse half fish called a hippocampus not hippocamp. here is proof: [link] it is also a part of the brain. but the mythical creature the hippocampus has been in mythology longer than it has been called a part of the brain. in fact the word "hippocampus" is Greek "hippo" meaning horse and "campus" meaning sea monster. it was called this because of the similarities between it and a sea horse. hippocampus is both a mythical creature and a part of the brain. both are correct.

well i looked up greek mythical creatures and i found that it is hippocampus and as i sed in my previous comment "hippocampus" can b 2 different things tho the hippocampus refering 2 the brain originated from the hippocampus the sea creature. and "hippocampi" is the plural form.
