This species is related to the seahorses. Unlike seahorses however, the seadragons do not have a pouch for rearing the young. Instead, male seadragons carry the eggs fixed to the underside of the tail.
This a Wobbegong shark (pretending to be a rock at the bottom of the photo!)
The name is believed to come from an Australian Aboriginal language, meaning "shaggy beard", referring to the growths around the mouth of the shark.
