Sea dragons are frequently taken by divers wanting to keep them as pets. In fact, such takings have diminished their numbers so critically forcing the Australian government to place a complete protection on both species. Pollution and destruction of habitat has also hurt their numbers, and they are currently listed as near threatened.

Sea dragons survive on tiny crustaceans such as mysids, or sea lice. It is not known if they are preyed upon by other animals. They are, however, frequently taken by divers seeking to keep them as pets. In fact, such takings shrank their numbers so critically by the early 1990s that the Australian government placed a complete protection on the species. Pollution and habitat loss have also hurt their numbers, and they are currently listed as near threatened. Long answer: Sea Dragons have very specialized needs and are very expensive

Also--- You will absolutely never see a sea horse or a sea dragon in a pet-smart... and just becuase a pet store doesn't have a certain animal doesn't mean that it's illegal to own one. lol. It will take you a good long time searching to find a leafy sea dragon though.Sorry 4 is difficult to understand (you answered most well in spite of it!) Well to rephrase 4) As I mentioned, Sea Monkeys, Aqua Dragons are TOYS - is this an extreme instance of nature/animals become objectified, or do think all pets/animals are marketed as products to some degree?
