Dozens of bizarre and vibrant creatures have washed up on Australian beaches following weeks of record rainfall.
Experts have been left stunned by the dead marine fish as pictures emerge of their unusual presence across seafronts in New South Wales.
The weedy seadragons have been spotted in Cronulla, Malabar and the Central Coast and they are thought to be 10 times the amount of normal wash-ups to hit the beaches.
Dr David Booth, professor of marine ecology at the University of Technology Sydney told the Sydney Morning Herald: “Clearly it’s a result of some combination of the shocking weather, pollutants being washed into the ocean and big surf."
