Sea dragons are slow swimmers with fragile bodies that drift along the ocean currents as their leafy appendages sway like seagrass. These delicate sea creatures are masters of camouflage as their leaves hide them in the seaweed, and their colors alter to blend into their ocean habitats. The sea dragon grace by which to move and blend provides their needed protection from numerous marine predators. Their leafy adornments protrude from all over their body, even their snout and head, and depict a rather whimsical, yet shrewd, character.
