Aquarium to feature
delicate dragons

It's the Year of the Dragon, and Australia's leafy sea dragons are coming to the Waikiki Aquarium. The exhibition's grand opening takes place 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

There will be food booths, prize giveaways and take-home arts-and-crafts projects to mark the occasion. The exhibit will remain at the aquarium indefinitely.

The leafy sea dragons (Phycodurus eques), are close relatives of seahorses and pipefish. These exquisite creatures resemble miniature dragons, with appendages that look like fronds of leafy seaweed. Like seahorses, male leafy sea dragons incubate eggs and produce about 200 offspring per brood. They live in water chilled to 68 degrees.

The Waikiki Aquarium is at 2777 Kalakaua Ave. Admission is $7 general, $5 for kama-'aina, active-duty military and senior citizens, $3.50 for ages 13 to 17, and free to keiki 12 and under. Call 923-9741 for information.
