New Sea Slug Named After GoT's Daenerys Targaryen

December 19, 2013


A new species of sea slug was discovered of the coast of Brazil by Federal University of Ceará Tropical Marine master's student Felipe de Vasconcelos Silva and named Tritonia khaleesi in honor of Game of Throne khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen's braided hair. That's cool, sometimes I wish I was named after a Game of Thrones character. "Joffrey Baratheon, the Whiny Boy King?" Hmmm, I was thinking more along the lines of Dragonfire McFacemelter.

Thanks Felipe, and keep your eyes peeled for one that looks like me (shouldn't be hard, I've been likened to a sea slug before).
