Weedy Seadragon

Meet our Weedy Sea Dragons!

SEA LIFE Melbourne has achieved a remarkable milestone by successfully breeding and raising weedy sea dragons for the sixth time, solidifying its position as a world leader in weedy sea dragon husbandry.

Fun fact: 

Weedy sea dragons have amazing camouflage abilities. Their bodies are covered in leaf-like protrusions, helping them blend seamlessly with seaweed and kelp.

Happy Lunar New Year

As part of the celebrations, guests can add their wishes to a magical Wishing Wall, sharing their hopes and dreams for the year ahead and letting the spirit of the season fill the aquarium with positive energy.
