Beauties under water

Like seahorses, sea dragons belong to the pipefish family and are also called “small shredded fish” because of their appearance.

They inhabit the seaweed and seaweed meadows off the coast of South Australia and their appearance is ideally suited to this habitat.

While catching their prey, they float through the water like a tuft of algae and approach their prey unnoticed, which they can suck in with their tube mouths in a flash.

With a size of around 46 cm, the sea dragons may not be among the largest dragons, but they are certainly among the most beautiful!

Don’t you think?

Regards and good night, Venus
