Sea horse

The seahorse is the mascot of Miri city. Miri is the second largest city in Sarawak. This oil rich city was first mined for oil in 1910 by the Shell company.

I always wonder why the sea horse is chosen as the mascot.

According to El Comercio, a Peruvian newspaper, illegal Chinese fishermen had captured 8 million seahorses when they were intercepted by Peruvian police. It was the largest known poaching of seahorses in South American history.
