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.
