Can someone please help out this poor Seahorse? He doesn't know how to read a clock, and he's late for a very important date!

Happy Father's Day! In honor of all the wonderful dad's out there, we're celebrating some of the best fathers of the animal kingdom.
Seahorse are one of the best dads in the animal kingdom because they not only help raise the babies, they carry out the pregnancy! During mating the female seahorse deposits her eggs in the male's specialized pouch, and the male carries up to 2,000 babies during its 10- to 25-day pregnancy. This gender-bending, traditional role reversal is why we think Seahorses have earned the title of Best Animal Dad!
