Pregnant for Father's Day

In the weedy sea dragon family it's the dads that carry the eggs, and this one is pregnant for only the third time ever at a U.S. aquarium, Georgia Aquarium officials said. The sea dragon has about 70 fertilized eggs — which look like small red grapes — attached to his tail. He is expected to give birth in early to mid-July. Sea dragons, sea horses and pipe fish are the only species where the male carries the eggs. Source: Newsvine
