Omaha World-Herald Published 5:17 PM EST Dec 30, 2018 Lincoln, Neb. – A Nebraska entomologist has named three of his eight newest beetle discoveries after the dragons from the HBO series “Game of Thrones” and George R.R. Martin book series “A Song of Ice and Fire.” University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor Brett Ratcliffe named the new scarab beetle species drogoni, rhaegali and viserioni, The Omaha World-Herald reported. The names are Latinized versions of Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion, three dragons owned by Daenerys Targaryen’s character in the fictional work. Radcliffe said he’s a fan of the series, but ultimately chose the names to draw attention to biodiversity and the amount of undiscovered species. “When you create names like these, you do it to gain a little bit of notoriety and bring public attention to it,” Ratcliffe said. “We’re still discovering life on Earth.

By Ryan Hagen | [email protected] | The Press-EnterprisePUBLISHED: November 28, 2018 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: November 30, 2018 at 4:19 pm Husky puppies are small, cuddly and adorable. Within months, though, huskies weigh more than 50 pounds, with the energy level of a dog bred to pull heavy sleds through miles of Alaskan snow. “They don’t have the blue-eyed pup they fell in love with,” said Jaclyn Schart, Animal Services chief for Riverside County. “They’ve turned into something that wants to pull a sled in Alaska all day. And if they have a short fence, the husky will escape right over it.” When the dog hits about 1 year old, overwhelmed owners surrender their husky to an animal shelter, Schart said. The mystery is why the number of huskies given to the shelters run by Riverside County is growing nearly as fast as the dogs themselves.
