Someone, who was likely high at the time, named a new found sea slug after the great Khaleesi and mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. The slug is called Tritonia khaleesi, and it was discovered off the coast of Brazil by Felipe de Vasconcelos Silva, a student at the Federal University of Ceará Tropical Marine. According to Felipe, he chose the name because the slug reminded him of Daenerys long braided hair.
