I have no good reason for discovering this (actually, I was checking to see if the United States can compare to India’s trifecta of awesome national symbols: tiger, peacock, and lotus), but I came across an image of a Leafy Sea Dragon on Wikipedia.
Holy cow! Check out the photos, they’ll blow you away.
But it gets better: there’s also a Weedy Sea Dragon.
These are real fish! Now I have no excuse for not living in Australia.
