SEA LIFE Welcomes Weedy Sea Dragons

A relative of the seahorse and pipefish, these dancing dragons love to swim, twirl, hide and dance along ocean kelp forests and sea beds that they call home. Find these curiously camouflaged creatures at SEA LIFE Kansas City in our new Weedy Exhibit – Now open!  


Native to the southern tip of Australia, weedy sea dragons prefer shallow, cool waters among rocky reefs, kelp and seaweed where they are able to hide themselves using their unique “weedy” appendages. While they spend the majority of their life as solitary creatures, weedy sea dragons are known for their peculiar courtship ritual known as the “mirror dance,” in which pairs swim gracefully together while mirroring each partner’s movements.
