Next week:  Texas overrun as winged lizards drive out crazy ants

Then what do they use to get rid of the lizards?

Draco Maculatus - very common in SE Asia.

Isn't this discovery at least a decade old?

Scratch that - close though. Looks like it's Draco sumatranus which was only recently (2001) classified as a separate species (instead of a subspecies of D. volans as previously thought)

I'm torn between thinking it's probably not wise to forcibly extend their wings that way and really wanting one as a pet.

So...its a flying lizard, and theres more than one  species ...How long until i have to buy some sort of repellent?  out of curiosity, just when does the screaming start?

In seriousness, has this lizard been sequenced ? Could it be crossed with a komodo dragon?
Because that would be a problem  (surprised syfy channel has not made a movie yet).

Is it a dragon?  No.  There are are real "dragons" though, for instance the Bearded Dragon.  But enough about your mom  -- this is a thread about scaley, cold-blooded creatures.  Dammit, I didn't it again.

It would be cool to see a movie with a gigantic fire-breathing dragon that had those kinds of wings, instead of the classic shoulder-mounted bat wings.

I've seen this pic before, but have no idea who or what i'm looking at. Is there a reason this woman has such bad bleach/wig hair? Its just off putting (To me at least)..

It is a scene from near the end of the (IIRC) first season of Game of Thrones, an HBO production you can get on Netflix.

Ok so it is 'Game of Thrones' ..I had my suspicions. I've never seen it, but have seen this woman in gifs, why is her hair that color? It sucks balls..
Thanks for schooling me..

Now that I think about it I think the scene is from the second half of the second season. Anyway, in that scene she has just emerged from her husband's funeral pyre...resurrected with her "babies" as she calls the dragons (only one of the 3 or 4 is in this photo). Got watch it. Start from the beginning. Game of Thrones is worth the price of admission at Netflix all by itself.

She is the last of a race of people called Valyrians who were dragon-taming badasses, and they had platinum blond hair and other unique physical attributes. When they cast the role, they went with a brunette actress and inexplicably left her with dark eyebrows (maybe to make her seem a little odd, since they scrapped the purple irises she was supposed to have). After a while, you don't really notice it because her character slowly becomes pretty awesome after an unfortunate "where are my dragons?" stretch of her character arc in season 2.

It's a great show, but it takes a while to get up to speed on the huge cast of characters and the big backstory of the world. Once you get past the initial period of feeling a little overwhelmed, it is a really engrossing story with some really great characters and scenes.

I've not been able to figure out why Emilia Clarke didn't bleach/dye her hair instead of wearing a wig.  I'd have thought it would have been easier.  I guess perhaps she didn't want to damage her natural hair?

In any case, the hair never bothered me to be honest.  I didn't even realize it was a wig until I read it a month ago.  I'm just glad they didn't make her bald for that scene like she is in the book.

It costs a lot more to dye it over the ten or so years they intend to work on this series. Better to just use a wig.
