A rare sighting of a frilled shark from 2007... The shark died soon after. Again, normally they live deep in the ocean. Leafy Sea Dragon (Glauert's) (Phycodrus Eques) near threatened seen alone or in pairs Habitat: rocky reefs
seagrass meadows 30 Meters Deep Found in South & East Australia Eat plankton, mysids, & other small ocean organisms Measure Leafy: 35 cm Weedy: 46 cm in length. Defensive spines on its sides bright pink eggs male carries eggs (like a sea horse) "Leaf-like" limbs come off body Suck food in through snout Snout here. Leafy Sea Dragon Longhorn Cowfish (Lactoria Cornuta) horns break easily, regrow in few months slow swimmers grunt when caught poisonous flesh Found in the Red Sea, off East Africa, and Southern Japan & Korea (to name a few) Usually found 1-45 meters deep, up to 100 meters release "ostracitoxin" when startled Live in...
protected seaward reefs
muddy/sandy coasts in bays Grow to about 46 cm Come in green, light orange, & yellow
sometimes w/ blue or white spots Mouth found under the head Feed On: benthic algae
small fish "Prehistoric" Frilled Shark Longhorn Cowfish Longhorn Cowfish Notice the horns under its tail, too Puffer Fish (Blowfish) (Tetraodontidae) most species considered stable Contain Tetrodotoxin
power to kill 30 humans
1,200x more powerful than cyanide
over 120 species
Delicacy in Japan
risk of death w/ one bad slice
many deaths are actually caused by this Eat... algae
Larger species... mussels
clams quickly take in water (sometimes air) to "blow up" Grow from 1 in. - 3 ft. 4 teeth-fused together Before... After! Anglerfish Anglerfish (Lophius piscatorius) over 200 species

young males find a female and latch on w/ teeth
