Leafy Sea Dragon (evolved from dragons of course)

The leafy seadragon or Glauert's seadragon, Phycodurus eques, is a marine fish in the family Syngnathidae, which also includes the seahorses. It is found along the southern and western coasts of Australia.

Sea Dragon. I saw one in an aquarium in Tennessee. It is hard to believe it is real. Terrific camouflage.

Sea Dragon - Unbelievable Floating Specters

Leafy Seadragon (Phycodurus eques) The sea dragon has evolved skin filaments that hang off its head, fins and tail, allowing for it to blend perfectly into the kelp forests in which it inhabits.One of my favorite animals!

Sea dragon. I think these are the most beautiful things in the sea

Leafy seadragons are beautiful, elaborate-looking fish that have frond-like appendages that help them blend into their surroundings. Here you can learn more about where leafy seadragons live, what they eat and how they reproduce.

Little sea dragon can I has ?!?!?!

Glaucus atlanticus (commonly known as the sea swallow, blue angel, blue glaucus, blue dragon, blue sea slug and blue ocean slug). This little sea slug eats poisonous jellyfish and stores their venom for its personal use

The Leafy Sea Dragons move around via a dorsal and pectoral fin. The leaf-like protrusions are much larger than those of the weedy sea dragon, and can change color, depending on the diet and stress levels of the individual creature.    The leafy sea dragon is South Australia's official marine emblem, and it is even the subject of a biennial festival, the “Leafy Sea Dragon Festival”, which is run by the District Council of Yankalilla, in South Australia.

Leafy Sea Dragon - in the family Syngnathidae, which also includes pipefish, and seahorse

Endemic to the waters off south and east Australia, leafy and weedy sea dragons are closely related to seahorses and pipefish. Leafies are generally brown to yellow in body color with spectacular olive-tinted appendages. Weedies have less flamboyant projections and are usually reddish in color with yellow spots.... #Sea_Dragons

**~A variety of Sea Dragon (not a seahorse)~**(Comment below pic - "Looks like he ate two tiny scuba divers." Is this critter for real (w/orw/out scuba divers)?

This is a little ocean thing called a Sea Dragon. So odd looking, yet beautiful.

PHYLLOPTERYX TAENIOLATUS, also known as the weedy seadragon, is a marine fish related to the sea horse found in the waters around Australia. I know this is supposed to be serious, but doesn't it look like it's hunting for the booty?

The leafy sea dragon produced random genetic mutations of weird leafy appendages, which happened to provide camouflage from non-vegetarian predators....amazing how it works!

Beware There Be Sea Dragons
