This is Mr Brace, a dad of one of the Gems I took these pictures of Sea Dragons when diving off the coast of Byron Bay, in New South Wales. Sea Dragons blend in really well with their environment. There are two sea dragons in the picture below. Can you find them?

There are two types of sea dragons - the Weedy Sea Dragon and the Leafy Sea Dragon.

The sea dragons in these pictures are Weedy Sea Dragons. The have a longer thinner snout than the Leafy Sea Dragon, bright blue bands of color on the upper side of their bodies and don't have as many 'leaf-like' appendages hanging off their body.
