True 'Facts' About Dragons

By August 5, 2012

Follow me on:

"The very word 'dragon' is related to other ancient words having to do with vision," writes our maestro of mythology Peter Kohler, "such as the Sanskrit darc, to see, the Avestic darstis, meaning sight, and the Old Irish derc, or eye. And like most wise and powerful beings, they guard secrets and confer favors."

It is also a fact that you cannot drown a dragon, no matter how hard you try. Read more...

Well that’s a steriotypical approach to Dragons Above ^.
Dragons for all we know could be Little toothless lizzard no more harmful that the common housefly. But they could also be an unearthly creature far beyond anything you or I could ever imagin. When most people think of dragons they thing large reptillian beasts with big leathery bat-wings, great clawed feet, long lizzard tail, then we think sharp, unforgiving fangs and a great mouth that brings fire. We also accociate Dragons with Evil Beings. Most Dragons, if you ask me, and if they were real, are harmless if they are left to their own.
But this information is just my oppinion, wheather you head this I don’t care.
Have a nice day,
Dragons Anonymous.

I think dragons are magnificent. :3 I mean we may be able to one day find these beast’s like every other animal on earth. If you thought about it, or read about, dragons can be found in large body’s of water. But the thing is, we as humans, can only imagine the places to look for them. We know more about the surface of the moon than the bottom of the ocean. So im hoping, one day someone will discover one of these dragons and learn of their knowledge, if they can speak. :)

most information about dragons are fake. they are not, indeed, just reptillian creatrs that have gint claws, horns, wings, and breathing fire, they are creatures of mystery. Any dragon can be multiple ways. fur, feathers, scales, or skin, for example. wings or no wings? how many? colour of dragon? The knumber of feet, though, is always 4. more later!

Dragon never existed,unless it will come out in the future. It wasn’t recorded in history nor does it have a theory of when or where a dragons’ bone was seen or picked. That’s my own view ��
