This is a video captured by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the Western Australian Museum of a ruby seadragon filmed in its natural habitat for the first time. The ruby seadragon is the third known species of seadragon, and differs from the other two species in its bright red coloration and lack of leaf-like appendages. This is the first time one has ever been seen alive. It's no mermaid, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. Keep hunting, marine biologists. You know I originally went to college to become a marine biologist but had to change my major after the first semester because I failed all my biology exam. Apparently writing 'mermaid titties' for every answer wasn't the right thing to do. "It was a multiple choice test." I thought they were trick questions!

Keep going for the informative video.

Thanks to Allyson S, who agrees we should definitely follow that dragon back to its lair to see what kind of treasure it sleeps on. I'm betting on pirate gold.
