use pipefish in a sentence.
A skinny little fish called the pipefish is high on the list of wildlife oddities, for the male of the species is the one which gets pregnant.
The pipefish, which is related to the seahorse, has an unusual way of organising childcare.
This one contained a slab of grey stone from the Marecchia River Formation in Italy, bearing the complete skeleton of a 20+ centimeter specimen of Syngnathus acus, an extinct species of pipefish from the Lower Pliocene (about 3-5 million years old).
Other resident fish species include threespine stickleback, gunnels, sculpin and bay pipefish (Figure 1).
Fishes then in general produce their young by copulation, and lay their eggs; but the pipefish, as some call it, when the time of parturition arrives, bursts in two, and the eggs escape out.
