Thanks a lot, I saw it in an aquarium in Australia but I could'nt remember it's name. I didn't know is was endemic to Australia either, came as a surprise haha, thanks again

Nice series, Brian, thanks for sharing! I looked at some of your other spottings and saw your unidentified incredibly weird seahorse, - which is a Weedy Seadragon, Phyllopteryx taeniolatus, endemic to Australia. What a creature!!! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phylloptery.... - For interesting Galapagos stuff follow us on facebook.com/darwinfoundation.
