Herpy.nu is now closed and archived - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018. The gallery will remain operational until further notice. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send me a PM over Twitter.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Latest post of the previous page:

I'm not talking about explosion, but ionization of the liquified element that in normal conditions is in gas state.
A plasma that has to be contained inside living organism.
It's generally bad idea, 'cause we have two problems that living tissue has to deal with simultaneously - high temperature and ESD - electrostatic discharge.

Though high temperature we can rule-out as a factor (cause dragon's body should be naturally heat-resistant), the ESD wil cause uncontrollable spasms while breathing fire. (not to mention all the damage to nervous system, and blood electrolysis).
After discharge it takes quite some time to bildup a charge anew, and dragon's breath can't be that limited.
Don't kill the edge and become like the rest.
Don't lose the faith that made you who you are
Don't kill the edge that manifests inside
This world is mine; it's where my thoughts collide...

Sadly, most 'specialised knowledge' is classified as useless... Yet it is also the most important. If I go on a rant about complex numbers (just an example), then 90% of people will just ignore/dismiss it as useless information, yet it tends to be extremely important if you are studying in that field, it's just that most people don't care about information, that is the society that has developed... Anyway sorry for going off topic.
