[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this pic at Sea World Indonesia.
Weedy sea dragons are also known as common sea dragon. They are solitary animals that can grow to up 45 cm in length. It has two spines above its eye, one spine in front of the eye, and a varying number of leafy appendages, either paired or single, along its body. These purple appendages have a black border, and provide the fish camouflage in its habitat because they resemble floating seaweed.

Thank you for sharing this with us. It is very unusual and the chance that I would see a real Sea Dragon is almost zero

Hello Boedy,
Very interesting sea creature. I agree with Betsie. TFS.
Best Regards
