The Weedy Seadragon is closely related to another of my marine favorites, the seahorse and is only found in southern Australian waters. What a magical creature. For video clips, visit Dragon Search

The last fish in Gould’s Book of Fish. While I enjoyed reading this book, and found a few passages that resonated strongly with me, I would agree with some critics of the book that there was a certain amount of wankosity that I had to skip over.

I think that one of the most interesting aspects of the book was Flanagan’s depiction of Empire, which he elaborates on in an interview with the Guardian.

The whole notion of empire and commonwealth is quite current for me now as a South African Canadian currently living in London
