This is a picture of a picture – a Munk’s Devil Ray jumping out of the ocean:

Among the various exhibits was one of sea horses.  Those photos are all pretty blurry but I do want to share these two variations.  I will follow them with better photos I found online.

The two photos above are of Weedy Seadragons.  They are only found near Australia.  Below is a Leafy Seadragon, also found only near Australia.
