On friday the 13th 2017, a red sea dragon was spotted for the first time in a 150 years, Australian researchers have observed two specimens of a rare sea dragon that's never before been seen alive.




The team that discovered this species, which included Nerida Wilson, named the marine fish after its color and they believe it is so red because it inhabits the deeper waters, where red hues are absorbed more efficiently and being red colored can help camouflage
Wikipedia


It inhabits the coast of Western Australia. The species was first described in 2015, making it only the third known species of seadragon, and the first to be discovered in 150 years. A specimen found on shore in 2007 was 23.5 cm (9.3 in) long.

Scientists recommend that the ruby seadragon be protected as soon as practicable, this will be interesting in a civilized world.

Very nice!!!.

It is good to find new life forms. It should keep us humble, to remember how very little we know about anything.

It's reassuring to continue to find 'lost' species in an environment so damaged by us.

I was just at the aqyarium and marveled at the seadragons. Theyre so hard to spot. Makes you wonder how many undiscovered species there are for just that reason.
