Leafy Seadragon

The leafy seadragon or Glauert's seadragon, Phycodurus eques, is a marine fish in the family Syngnathidae, which includes seadragons, pipefish, and seahorses. It is the only member of the genus Phycodurus. See Wikipedia: Leafy seadragon. There are a lot of really strange animals in the oceans of the world. These lovely fish are found along the southern coast of Australia. We found this one in the Birch Aquarium at Scripps at the University of California at San Diego, California.
