Leafy Sea Dragons

No this is not a Disney creature but a living sea dragon. I was intrigued by a report in todays news about a pair of Sea dragons that have mated in captivity. Say what?????

I have never heard of this creature so Good Morning Google Images and here they are......

They range is size from 9 to 14 inches. A cousin of the seahorse they do not have a prehensile tale. They have little pectoral fins and are content to float with the current and dine on tiny "sea lice."

Then I found a picture of this little beauty..... this is a Mandarin fish

.......all my favourite colours too. I would hang his picture on my wall!

Nature in all it's splendor is a sight to behold.
