Weedy Seadragon

"Weedy Sea Dragons grow to a mature length of about 18 inches (45 cm). They use camouflage as their primary defense, and are found along the southern reefs and sandy underwater areas of Australia. Though relatively common compared to Leafy Sea Dragons, Weedy Sea Dragons are also government protected, and subject to strict export controls.

Though they are similar in appearance to sea horses, Weedy Sea Dragons do not have prehensile (gripping) tails, but rather appear to use them for steering. The beautiful colors of this sea dragon are highlighted by the iridescent blue bands along the upper body."

I'm moving from Michigan to sunny
California, in San Diego. What kind of sea creatures are found around the La Jolla and Coronado beach areas. You are the discover of the bizarre. I will call you the bizarre king. You bequest us the underlings the gift of the deep. Now that is a deep thought.
