And now a picture of one of the Dragon's favorite relatives, the Leaf Sea Dragon. I have often wondered of the synchronicity by which this most psychedelic of creatures, happens to have the initials LSD. Posted for no reason, besides these are so freakin' cool!
Sea Dragons are arguably the most spectacular and mysterious of all ocean fish. Though close relatives of sea horses, sea dragons have larger bodies and leaf-like appendages which enable them to hide among floating seaweed or kelp beds. Sea dragons feed on larval fishes and amphipods, such as and small shrimp-like crustaceans called mysids ("sea lice"), sucking up their prey in their small mouths. Many of these amphipods feed on the red algae that thrives in the shade of the kelp forests where the sea dragons live.
