• Though close relatives of sea horses, sea dragons have larger bodies, growing at least 18 inches (45 cm), where sea horses range in size from 16 mm to 35 cm. They also have leaf-like appendages which enable them to hide among floating seaweed or kelp beds. These creatures are only native to the waters around southern and western Australia and generally remain in shallow, temperate waters. They are not preyed upon by any species other than humans.
