Have you ever seen an Australian Sea Dragon?

I went to the New England Aquarium last week, for the first time in probably 25 years.  I have to admit, they've got some pretty great stuff in there.  At one point I was looking at tank full plants and some cool bright colored seahorse looking things, when all of a sudden one of the plants started swimming around.  

It's official name is Phyllopteryx, also known as the "weedy sea dragon," and they live off the southern coast of Australia.  And there's my second 8th grade Earth Science lesson of the week.
