Weedy Seadragon

Weedy sea Dragons are a marine fish related to the seahorse, and can reach 45cm in length. Often referred to as 'Masters of Disguise', they have the unique ability to appear virtually invisible to their predators. Looking a lot like seaweed, sea dragons move in a similar swaying motion as seaweed would if caught in a current. This camouflage trick protects them further from predators and is known as 'mimicry'.

Where do they live?

Both the Weedy and Leafy sea dragon call the south coast of Australia home. Leafy sea dragons can be found between Lancelin in Western Australia and Wilsons Promontory in Victoria while Weedy sea dragons can be found all along the south coast as well as southern New South Wales and Tasmania.
