Leafy Sea Dragon
Can you spot our Leafy Sea Dragon? It is part of the seahorse family but looks like no other Seahorse!
You’d be forgiven for missing it as this species really does look like pieces of seaweed. Their camouflage is so perfect that they are hard for us to spot. It’s good news because it means that their predators can’t spot them either.
Things to Do
- When you come you’ll see our Leafy glide effortlessly through the water looking like stray seaweed.
- Learn more about mysis. This is the Leafy Sea Dragon’s favourite food – it is a type of small shrimp.
- Marvel at the leaf-like look of the Leafy (hence the name), which helps them camouflage in their natural habitat.
