Dance of the Weedy Seadragons.

Originally shared by NATURE

Dance of the Weedy Seadragons. A male weedy seadragon seduces a female with some very fancy fin work. Two months later, however, its the male who’s left carrying the eggs! Living off the coast of south Australia, weedy seadragons ( Phyllopteryx taeniolatus ) sway to the rhythm of the waving seaweeds.

Inspired by the beautiful image posted by New England Aquarium .

    The male seduces the female and carries the eggs ?!? How unfair!
