The newly identified Pheidole drogon worker ants are called "dragon ants" based on their strange, reptile-like spine.

But these tropical insects also got their name because the scientists who discovered them are obsessed with Game Of Thrones!

According to the study that chronicles the finding of the two separate species, one population in Papua New Guinea and the other in Fiji — explains the ants reminded the researchers of Daenerys Targaryen's dragons in the HBO fantasy series!

But unlike the fire-breathing dragons in the show, you have no reason to be afraid of the harmless drogon worker ants.

Instead of snacking on charred sheep and the occasional extra-crispy shepherd's boy like Dany's Drogon, these insects are scavengers and collectors of seeds.

But with a gnarly spine and scary spikes around their necks (see below), these ants still look like

Look how happy he is simply to be swimming around!

If you've never heard of Kaavan the Elephant, then you're probably blissfully unaware that the 32-year-old Asian elephant has spent nearly all of the past 30 years locked in chains at the Murghazar Zoo in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Animal rights activists only just started fighting for Kaavan's freedom in 2015 after an American tourist in Pakistan learned about his captivity… but we're happy to say he'll no longer be living in pain.

That's because it was announced on Monday that the Pakistani Senate has ruled in favor of the Help Welfare Organization that the Capital Development Authority who house him must release the animal to a sanctuary to live out his remaining years with other elephants!

Kaavan's chains were initially removed in September of 2015 when tourist Samar Khan first started the petition, and she spoke to The Dodo about the AH-Mazing news on Monday, saying:

Remember The Dentist Who Killed Cecil The Lion? Someone Just Stole & Crashed His $61,000 Boat!

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!LionsAnimal CrueltyViral: News

Hate thy neighbor.

It's with a heavy heart that we must report that the world lost yet another gorgeous creature this week… a boat belonging to Dr. Walter Palmer.

You may remember the infamous Minnesota dentist as the man who paid $55,000 to kill Cecil the Lion only to suffer zero legal consequences due to Zimbabwean hunting laws… but instant karma may have finally caught up to him.

That's because a neighbor near the good doctor's Florida vacation home just stole and crashed his $61,000 boat on Sunday!

Apparently, 26-year-old Andrew Derwin and a friend noticed that one of Walt's employees had the left the keys out in the open in his Marco Island backyard, and promptly swiped them for a breezy Summer joyride.

Unfortunately for the pair, Andrew crashed the boat later that afternoon — resulting in emergency first aid after the other passenger seriously injured himself on the boat's propeller!

The thief has a criminal history of 13 prior arrests and is currently being held on $10,000 bail, and we cannot wait to see this aquatic vessel-killer brought to justice to the fullest extent of the law!

Too bad he didn't just murder a manatee or something… probably would have gotten off with a warning. Right, Doc?

Justin Bieber Received Official Complaint From Toronto Animal Services For Those Controversial Pics With Exotic Cats

| Filed under: Legal MattersJustin BieberPETAAnimal RightsLionsInstagram

Justin Bieber

There's no doubt Justin Bieber loves to show off hanging out with exotic animals on Instagram — a hobby that has landed him in some pretty hot water!

You may recall back in April when the singer posed alongside a chained Bengal tiger at his father's engagement party (above), and then again in a picture posted a month later with a lion cub — and these are just two of the times in Toronto alone.

Well turns out the 22-year-old received a formal complaint from Toronto Animal Services back at the beginning of June stating that both of these instances violated a municipal code that bans the "keeping" of wild animals such as lions, tigers, and bears cougars in the city.

The notice of violation and request for compliance in the future, dated June 3, 2016, was obtained Thursday by PETA and can be viewed (below)!
