Why is this seahorse male so thick?

it is pregnant
it has swallowed an octopus
it is changing skin
it holds some air inside
Seahorse males deliver the babies. After mating, the fer­til­ized eggs are embedded in the pouch wall and become sur­round­ed by a spongy tissue. The male provides oxygen and supplies the eggs with pro­lact­in, the same hormone re­spon­si­ble for milk pro­duc­tion in pregnant mammals.
