Fanny the Dragon

The dragon Fanny, as the scary green mythical creature is affectionately called by the public, can walk, roll its eyes, flap its wings, roar and breathe fire. The high-tech robot plays a big part in Germany's oldest folk play - the "Drachenstich" - and holds a Guinness World Record. Fanny also has a place of honour at the Haus der Bayerischen Geschichte (House of Bavarian History) in Regensburg.
