    The leafy seadragon has excellent camouflage among kelp and sea grasses. The leafy seadragon is related to sea horses and pipefish, and like sea horses, the male carries the young until they are ready to hatch. Seadragons carry young on their tails verses a pouch, however. Seadragons live off the coast of Australia and are rare to sight.
