Pegasus (Dragon) Sea Moth
Eurypegasus draconis

 

One of the most bizarre fish, anywhere in the world, is the Pegasus Sea Moth.

These little fish, about 10cm long when fully grown, often hang around in pairs (or more), and ‘walk’ along the sandy bottoms, looking out for small crustaceans to eat.

They seem to have legs, wings, a bird-like beak and a weird lump between their shoulders, making them a truly unique fish and always a firm favorite.

What makes this bit a video even more interesting is that the Sea Moths are one of the critters that always swim way from you when you try to get video or photos. There must be 1000s of photos of their behinds!!

I was extremely lucky to find one this week that allowed me to film it from the front, enabling us to see it’s mouth.
