Australia's science agency apologises after failing to create dragon eggs

Australia's national science agency has apologised to the nation for failing to invent "a dragon or dragon eggs" after a seven-year-old girl, Sophie Lester, wrote a letter asking the scientists to make her a dragon.

"I would like it if you could, but if you can't that's fine," she wrote, after begging her parents for a baby dragon for Christmas.

In the letter, addressed "Hello lovely scientist", Sophie promised to call the dragon "Toothless" if it were a girl, and "Stuart" if it were a boy.

In a response posted on its website, the agency, the CSIRO, said it was proud of its work since 1926 but regretted that it had yet to create or observe a dragon "of the fire breathing variety".
