  1. Leafy sea dragon, a relative of seahorses. They’re not usually blue either. .. weird lighting in the photo.

    This is a leafy seadragon. From Wiki:

    The leafy seadragon or Glauert’s seadragon,[1] Phycodurus eques, is a marine fish in the family Syngnathidae, which includes seadragons, pipefish, and seahorses. It is the only member of the genus Phycodurus.

    It is found along the southern and western coasts of Australia. The name is derived from the appearance, with long leaf-like protrusions coming from all over the body. These protrusions are not used for propulsion; they serve only as camouflage.

  3. That is a Peacockus Seahorsisus….an extremely rare………..no, seriously, I have not a notion in my noggin. These are too tough for me…….is there a pre-school version of this game?

    1. If it’s any consolation, I don’t know any of the animals I post either. And I would be a terrible guesser. When I first saw this animal, I guessed PLANT.
