Could you please help me to translate this:
the foot-long weedy seadragon -distant cousin of the seahorse - which paddles like a tin-plate toy through emerald jungles of gigant kelp.

mi intento:
El dragon de mar común (PHYLLOPTERYX TAENIOLATUS) - primo lejano del caballito de mar - el cual paddles como un juguete de hojalata through emerald jungles of gigant kelp.

I can`t figure out neither the meaning of paddles nor the meaning of through emerald jungles of gigant kelp in this sentence.

I really appreciate your help.

    The closest I could find is "aletea."

    Extract from the DRAE:
    Los vertebrados acuáticos se impulsan usando los apéndices locomotores (aletas).

    Saludos.

    Aletear, pero suena a pajaros que aletean, mueven sus alas.
    Un suave aleteo del dragón de mar entre el verde esmeralda de las junglas de las gigantescas algas.
