Posted by on Friday, January 20, 2017


Scientists have filmed a ruby sea-dragon for the first time. A rare fish.

The ruby sea-dragon is a marine fish that closely resembles seahorses. It inhabits the coast of Western Australia.

This footage shows the 25 cm sea-dragon in Western Australia’s Recherche Archipelago.

The ruby sea-dragon was declared a new species in early 2015, making it just the third known sea-dragon species, as well as the first discovered in 150 years.
