Aquarium breeds rare weedy sea dragon

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A Southern California aquarium has successfully bred the rare weedy sea dragon, the lesser known cousin of the sea horse that resembles seaweed when floating.

San Diego's Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography said in a news release Thursday that two weedy sea dragons have hatched this week, making the aquarium one of the few in the world to successfully breed the unusual fish.

The babies with leafy appendages are less than an inch long, and have eaten their first meal of tiny shrimp. The aquarium is keeping the delicate creatures out of public view for now.

It's great that the aquarium was able to successfully breed the little sea dragons. They're adorable! All I could think of is how much I would like a brooch that is identical to them.
