Fans of the popular book by George R. R. Martin, A Song of Ice and Fire, which also spawned the HBO series Game of Thrones, might have caught on that our new Komodo dragon is the namesake of the book’s dragon princess. Well, as it turns out, Mr. Martin got wind of her and mentioned that he thinks this is really cool on his blog. Needless to say, we’re very flattered! And our herpetologists, who happen to be HUGE fans, are positively swooning. You can catch his comment here.
Mr. Martin, thanks for making our day! Khaleesi is quite a regal dragon, and definitely lives up to her name.
Ready for her close up!
