Weedy sea dragon

The Weedy sea dragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus) is a marine fish related to the seahorse. It is native to the shallow water around the southern coastline of Australia, between Port Stephens and Geraldton, as well as Tasmania. Weedy sea dragons are named for the weed-like projections on their bodies, which serve to camouflage them as they move among the seaweed beds where they are usually found.
