These curious creatures are graceful to watch from above but don't forget to take a look through the window below to see the mouth and gills on the underside of their body as they pass on by. Our eagle eyed guests may even spot a Ray's egg hidden in the sand.

Sea Dragon

8. Seahorse Kingdom

Seadragons and Seahorses may sound like mythical creatures but here you can see just how real they are!
In this kingdom Seahorses grip at seagrass with their curly tails and suck up tiny shrimp with their straw-like snouts.
Seadragons bob slowly past the window; with deep purple stripes, splatters of vibrant orange and seaweed-like appendages... you've never seen anything like these before!

Male seahorses, seadragons and pipefish are the only male animals to give birth!
