Don't worry, despite it's common name being leafy seadragon, this guy won't eat you; unless you happen to be plankton, a mysid or some other small crustacean. They only get to about 35cm long when mature (which takes about two years to happen). They located around Australia below low-tide lines; and are both rare and fragile. They are thus Near Threatened, so any handling is discouraged - but they do seem to like having their picture taken!
