Behold, The Ruby Seadragon!

2015 is shaping up to be an amazing year for paleontological discoveries, but also of new contemporary species. This one is just too glorious to miss. It's a new species of seadragon, which look like seahorses but are larger. Until now, only two species were known -- now there is a third, a delight to the fantasy lover as well as the marine biologist.

The photo was taken by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. You can read more about the discovery here.
