Seahorses and Seadragons - Southern Australia

These bizarre looking creatures, the seadragons and seahorses (along with pipefish ) are actually fish and are part of a family known as Syngnathidae. The first picture is of a Leafy seadragon which is endemic to South Australia and the Weedy seadragon, which is common in Victorian waters, is the states marine emblem. Leafy Seadragon
