Leafy seadragon or Glauert's seadragon, Phycodurus eques, swimming over algae covered rock. The lobes of skin that grow on the leafy seadragon provide camouflage, giving it the appearance of seaweed. It is able to maintain the illusion when swimming, appearing to move through the water like a piece of floating seaweed. It can also change colour to blend in, but this ability depends on the seadragon's diet, age, location, and stress level. South Australia. Composite image
