The Dragon’s Skull

Yes this is not a real dragon’s skull but it is still pretty creepy. This weird little plant is called a Snapdragon or Dragon flower or, if you want to sound even smarter, The Antirrhinum. Once the flower has died, the seed pod begins to look like the skulls you see here. Apart from being creepy as hell and alleged protectors of the garden, if you wore this about your body you would appear to be more “fascinating and gracious”. Though I imagine if anyone actually did find this on you, fascinating and gracious are not the only things they will think about you. Continue reading »

Leafy Sea Dragon

The leafy seadragon or Glauert’s seadragon, Phycodurus eques, is a marine fish in the family Syngnathidae, which also includes the seahorses. It is the only member of the genus Phycodurus. It is found along the southern and western coasts of Australia. The name is derived from the appearance, with long leaf-like protrusions coming from all over the body. These protrusions are not used for propulsion; they serve only as camouflage.

The leafy seadragon propels itself by means of a pectoral fin on the ridge of its neck and a dorsal fin on its back closer to the tail end. These small fins are almost completely transparent and difficult to see as they undulate minutely to move the creature sedately through the water, completing the illusion of floating seaweed.

Bhutan Royal Wedding: Dragon King Marries Commoner

Bhutan had its very own royal wedding on Thursday, as the nation’s “Dragon King” married an educated commoner 10 years his junior. King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, 31, and his new bride, Queen Jetsun Pema, 21, were joined by thousands of royal enthusiasts, as the ceremony took place at a Himalayan monastic fortress.

The king and queen, draped in traditional attire that included a raven’s head and a silk-embroidered crown, also sipped on a chalice of ambrosia that symbolized eternal life, according to Reuters. The ceremony, which included dance performances, baby elephants and a procession of singers, aired live on national television for Bhutan’s 700,000 people.

Pema, who is the daughter of an airline pilot, is educated just like her new husband. The young queen studied subjects including English and economics at the prestigious Lawrence School Sanawar in India before pursuing her college degree at Regents College in London, where she focused on International Relations, Psychology and Art History.

The king has a degree in Foreign Service Programme and International Relations from Magdalen College at the University of Oxford. “I am happy. I have been waiting quite some time . . . she is a wonderful human being, intelligent. Her and I share one big thing in common – love and passion for art,” Wangchuck told reporters following the ceremony.

The royal couple first announced their engagement on May 20, during the opening of the seventh session of parliament.
