This leafy sea dragon's kelp-shaped appendages present a
confusing appearance, even when viewed from the front. The extensions on
its head look like the stems of a plant. The pectoral fins on either
side of its head are barely visible, as they beat rapidly in a rippling
motion to steer the dragon from side to side. As with seahorses, sea
dragons are very slow swimmers, relying on their ability to blend in
with their surroundings for survival.
Identification: Phycodurus eques
