The ribbon dragon exhibit is located in the Aquarium’s Tropical Pacific gallery.
Despite its common name these animals are not true seadragons but rather pipefish. They live in the shallow tropical seas of Australia and Indonesia. They use their prehensile tails to attach to seagrass while searching for prey, consisting mostly of planktonic crustaceans. The ribbon dragon is similar to the Rainbow Serpent depicted in ancient Aboriginal drawings that date back to 6,000 years ago. Check out our other webcams.
