Seadragons are not suitable pets for hobby collectors because they are very difficult to feed and maintain. Pang is totally dedicated to the care of his seadragons, so much so that he goes diving almost every day to net live shrimp for them to eat.
Subsequently, what does a leafy sea dragon do?
Slow-swimming and with fragile bodies, seadragons depend on camouflage to hide them from predators. Their leafy appendages, ability to change color to match their seaweed and seagrass habitats, and ability to sway like plants in the water current help protect them from predators.
Then, are leafy sea dragons dangerous?
While they are not particularly in danger from predators, leafy sea dragons are extremely delicate marine critters and are affected by human activities.
How long do sea dragons live?
Aqua Dragons are live aquatic creatures with a scientific name, Artemia Salina from the crustacea family, their eggs have an amazing natural capacity called diapause which allows them to stay alive but hibernating in a dried state only to hatch many years later.
An analysis by Citizens in Space suggests that the price of building a modern Sea Dragon would be $22 billion in modern dollars. The trick to making such a rocket economical would be a flight rate of somewhere between 12 and 24 launches per year.
Sea Dragons are quite at home in the water and are probably the fastest swimmer on or under the sea and can dive to great depths with ill affect. Sea Dragons also are capable of flying pretty well, though they do this rather seldom. If so, they do it mainly for mating rituals.
The Leafy Sea Dragon has no known predators. Their leafy camouflage and spiny fins keep large fish from snacking on them. They slurp up their food, using their long snout like a drinking straw.
Though less than one inch long when born, this rare fish species can grow to 18 inches. It gets its name from its seaweed-like appearance. Weedy sea dragons are native to southern Australia. But due to climate change and pollution, some have been moved to aquariums to protect them from danger.
The leafy seadragon can also change color depending on how deep down it goes; it’s even been known to stay still for nearly three days at a time, just drifting along with the current.
