This project centres around one of Australia's iconic fish, the Leafy Sea Dragon, Phycodurus eques. This seahorse relative is a graceful creature who moves slowly and relies on their leafy appendages to camouflage them from discovery by predators. The Leafy Seadragon is also the state fish of South Australia and is found across the southern coastline of Australia. View the link here for more information.
