Striking Images Capture The Majestic Beauty Of Seadragon



Researchers in Australia finally caught on camera what they were looking for: a new species of seadragon in its natural habitat.

Seadragon

I fully expected that we knew all the species that are out there. But the discovery showed us that we can still find big, charismatic, bright red fish that no one has ever seen before.” – Josefin Stiller of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego
She discovered the “RubySeadragon” in 2015 by analyzing the DNA of preserved specimens.

Seadragon

They have long, thin snouts and leaf-shaped appendages that act as camouflage, are related to pipefish and seahorses. Before Stiller’s discovery, only two types were known: the Leafy Seadragon and the common seadragon (sometimes also called the WeedySeadragon).
