Although it’s not really a real dragon, but the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) granted a child’s wish where they crafted the mythical creature out of titanium.
Sophie, a 7 year old girl, wished for a pet dragon. She wrote to CSIRO where the letter goes like this:
Hello Lovely Scientist
My name is Sophie and I am 7 years old. My dad told me about the scientists at the CSIRO. Would it be possible if you can make a dragon for me. I would like it if you could but if you can’t thats fine.
I would call it toothless if it was a girl and if it is a boy I would name it Stuart.
I would keep it in my special green grass area where there are lots of space. I would feed it raw fish and I would put a collar on it. If it got hurt I would bandage it if it hurt himself. I would play with it every weekend when there is no school.
Love from Sophie
Vanessa Hill, spokeswoman from CSIRO, couldn’t resist not responding to the letter they received. She then sent an apology letter together with a surprise gift.
