Public Service Announcement

I used to make these all the time in Limnology.  But I have an important public service announcement and it doesn't have to do with any reptiles... well actually it does.  This is called a PSA if you're really savvy.

Grubby is a part of everyone's life here in the villa.  Amanda often spends quality time with him even when I don't suggest it, Norah and Aliza are always looking for him and Kate Wright hasn't taken a liking to him, but I can tell that she will soon.

Here is a sign of how much people love Grubby:

Aliza included him in her beautiful Art drawing.

But that's not my PSA because everyone already knows about Grubby's fame.  My PSA is that Grubby is a dragon.  Here is the proof:

Grubby is a Gronckle.

I identified him as I was watching "How to Train your Dragon".  I don't know how I didn't see it before.  All I can say is, "Wow!"  Listen to this, it sounds just like Grubby:

The Gronckle is the toughest dragon in the dragon world and more than lives up to its looks on the battlefield. The Gronckle can launch a devastating fire attack but is limited to six shots at a time. The Gronckle can be slow, lazy, and cranky; it has been known to fall asleep mid-flight, waking only when it plunges into the sea or crashes into a mountain. Because of its tremendous weight and small wings, it would seem impossible for them to fly. However, because the wings of a Gronckle beat at a speed similar to that of hummingbirds' or bees' wings, it is possible for one to sustain flight. In fact, a Gronckle can fly backward, sideways and even hover in place. Its tail can be mistaken for the head if little attention is paid. It is also prone to dragon acne. Because of its large stout body and clubbed tail, the Gronckle somewhat resembles an ankylosaur.
