The many sides of the seadragons
There are two species of seadragon at the Aquarium—and, in fact, in the world: leafy (Phycodurus eques) and weedy (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus). These slow-moving swimmers rely on camouflage to avoid predators. They’re pretty good at it.

Naming contest winners!
There are two female manta rays that were recently tagged as part of a research project funded by the Aquarium’s Marine Conservation Action Fund. The Aquarium community recently helped name them. There were tons of awesome suggestions, but the winning names are just the winningest. These names are super inspiring!
