The regal hippocampus is a sea horse of Greek and Roman mythology.
Possessing the body of a horse and the tai of a fish or dolphin, these creatures are often depicted pulling the chariots of Neptune and Poseidon, the sea Gods.
Sometimes drawn with a serpent's tail or the bottom half of a dragon, their front feet are usually webbed and they have fins on their backs instead of manes.

A section of the brain is called the Hippocampus because it's shaped somewhat like a seahorse.
