Weddy Sea Dragon


About the Print

Featuring The Weedy Sea Dragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus)

Is it a weed? Is it a seahorse? No, It's a Weedy Seadragon! Yes, Dragons do exist!

According to the IUCN they are listed as Near Threatened due to illegal poaching and habitat degradation. Their cousin the Leafy Seadragon is Sir David Attenborough’s favourite marine animal which Lawrence has since photographed and hopes to see again very soon.

Weedy Seadragons are a part of the Syngnathidae family which includes pipefishes & seahorses.
