A leafy seadragon in the waters off Wool Bay, Australia
Leafy Seadragon Phycodurus Eques
Australias southern coast is leafy seadragon territory, so its the location to go if you want to peer the camouflaged critter in its native habitat. This brilliant specimen was photographed near Wool Bay. The leafy seadragon has developed to resemble harmless plant fabric, an clean manner to keep away from predators. Its a relative of the seahorse, however isnt quite the swimmer that its cousin is, so the camouflage offers it a massive gain.
