Reproductive Biology

Many aspects of its reproduction are similar to that of the leafy seadragon. Males carry roughly equivalent numbers of eggs, which also are embedded in their skin. They usually have one brood per season, and mating begins from October to November. Young hatch after about two months, settling on the substrate. Hatchlings do not have the elongated snout of the adults, but it grows quickly; their elaborate dermal flaps are much smaller. Juveniles resemble adults by about 4.7 in (12 cm) in length.
