This Leafy Seadragon Cam Is the Calm You Need Right Now

It’s time for a very happy birthday to two Weedy Seadragons (aka Leafy Seadragons) who were hatched at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego one year ago this week! In honor of the growing babies, Birch Aquarium is celebrating by launching a live Seadragon Cam so you can check up their growth anytime you want.

Born on Feb. 11 and 12 2020, each one was less than one inch at birth! The momentous occasion was the first time Birch Aquarium bred Weedy Seadragons and one of the only aquariums in the world to have done so.

For now, Birch Aquarium is still closed to the public. In the meantime, you can get your Weedy Seadragon fix by tuning into the webcam at HDOnTap 24/7 (and maybe zen out a little bit, too).
