Weedy Seadragon Eggs

Weedy Seadragons are one of the most unusual and colourful creatures in the sea. They have multiple coloured spots that create an individual pattern that can be used for identification much like a Zebras stripes and a golden or red hue that really pops out when the sun beams down on them. One of their most striking features however is the magnificent eggs that adorn the males tail during the breeding season. Unlike most animals the family eggs are carried by the male on his tail. They are placed here by the female and usually take 4 to 6 weeks to hatch whereupon almost 200 miniature Seadragons can break free and swim off into the surrounding ocean. Summer time is the best time to see these amazing eggs, check out some of the images below and you can't miss them!
