A little miracle - the weedy sea dragon
Aren't these the best little critters?
I was first interested in them when reading Gould's Book of Fish and saw this picture in it.
The whimsy..... and the abandoned look in its eyes........
and if that is not enough magic, last night I saw this in a David Attenborough doco which you should watch. I think it's all I need to believe in God.
They hang out in the waters around Sydney although i have never seen one in the wild (have seen them in an aquarium). My cousin though, he is a marine biologist and sometimes he gets paid to go diving and count weedy sea dragons.
