The Leafy Sea Dragon (Phycodurus eques) is related to sea horses and pipefish. It lives on the coast of Western Australia, hiding in sea weed where its tattered appearance is very effective camouflage.
It feeds on shrimp, small fish and plankton, but it doesn't have any teeth. It sucks its food down its snout instead.
Unlike sea horses, it cannot hold on to plants with its tail. AnLeafy Sea Dragons swims with the help of two small fins on its back and tail. It relies on the camouflage for protection.
