Leafy Seadragon - Endangered Animal

"Leafy Sea Dragon male carrying eggs, found near Adelaide, Australia on a shore dive in of water.

The weedy sea dragon lives along the southern coast of Australia and around Tasmania. They can grow as long as 45 cm (17.5 inches). They have projections that resemble seaweed, which acts as camouflage. This helps them hide in seaweed beds, between the depths of 3 meters and 50 meters (10 feet and 164 feet).

Migaloo, Aboriginal for ‘white fella', is the only known all-white humpback whale in the world. Marc had photographed him at sea level but knew that the way to get the perfect portrait would be from the air. " I clicked the shutter as Migaloo took one last breath and disappeared like a giant ghost into the depths."
