It means 'Queen' in a fictional language from 'Game of Thrones' .

2. Artemis is usually associated with what celestial body(s)?
3. The name of this gas comes from Greek for "water-former."
4. There are 12 major Gods in Greek Mythology ; Name six to get credit...

Wolves have the highest kill rate of all of earth’s land predators at 85%.
1. 'Unconditional Surrender'

Aphrodite, Hephaestus and Hermes.
5. the Hermitage

That 85% kill rate I mentioned is the highest, that’s true. But it’s Africa’s
wild dog that achieves it, not lions, not cheetahs and not wolves.
Lions get just 17 to 19 %, Tigers and polar bears get just 10%, and wolves,
14%. Feral domestic cats achieve 32%, leopards about 14%, while peregrine
falcons record a success rate of 47%.
