Leafy sea dragon
The Leafy Sea Dragon, endemic to Australia, was listed as a nearly threatened species. Although they are 40 cm long, it is always difficult to find them due to their mimicry of the surrounding kelp. It is one of the most beautifully elaborate mimicry creatures on earth. It has been captured for ornamental purposes because of this beautiful appearance, and is vulnerable to environmental stress, so their number has been reduced.
