I was reading this article about a fish called the Sea dragon. A kind of fish that’s pretty close in relation to the seahorse or the pipefish. There are two different kinds of the sea dragon there’s a weedy dragon and the leafy dragon. These fish are covered in leaf-like appendages all over their bodies, and are perfectly outfitted to blend into the seaweed and kelp formations that they’re surrounded by. Leafy dragons are generally brownish yellow in body color with remarkable olive colored appendages. Weedy dragons have a less lively look and are usually a reddish color, sometimes with yellow spots. Leafies can get up to about 13- 14 inches long while the Weedies can get up to 18 inches. These fish have very long, skinny snouts and also very thin tails which they use for gripping. They will usually drift along with the current like seaweed but they have small transparent dorsal fins that help them swim.
Ive never seen anything like a sea dragon before and i thought they were pretty interesting and also pretty cool to look at.
Do you think there are any other species of fish that are similar to sea dragons?
