What if Dragons were real?


What would you do if they were real, or had been at one point and perhaps were driven to extinction by all those stories you read about knights fighting dragons and such? What then? With our world being so mysterious and animals thought to be extinct popping up randomly from time to time, could a real, living, breathing dragon come to life?
How many of you have ever wondered if dragons truly existed? Or if there were larges lizards that could have caused rise to the dragon myths? And how many of you have sat around hoping to meet a real dragon one day?Well look no further than this image I found some years back taken at some time in 2004.I know what you’re thinking… Is that real? (Well, maybe some of you are thinking it, and some of you are just thinking what a lot of scientists thought when they saw this). No, it isn’t real, but it is possibly the most elaborate hoax in the history of zoological hoaxes from a physical standpoint. Certainly there were hoaxes around Nesse and Big Foot, but none of those hoaxes ever provided something that is as tangible as the image above.
It’s not real, but it certainly got people turning heads when it popped up some time ago. Here is the story!

  1. if dragons were real,wich i also think they are, i would like to find an(abandoned but still warm) egg so i could raise the dragon and train it and stuff

    i would really hate dragon slayers
    (if they would kill dragons that did nothing wrong)

  2. Also, people only slayed them cuz they thought they were born from the fires of hades or some other stupid reason. Dragons are just misunderstood.

  3. man it would be so awsome 2 find a dragon egg!! i would raise it 2 be my own!!p.s(i hate dragon slayers they should just leave the dragons alone and the dragons wouldnt hurt anything!!!) (the dragons just want some peace!!!)

  4. people slay dragons because of the lust for domination, all most dragons want to do is conquer and rule, so stuff you thought about raising and training a nice dragon, it will end up betraying you and ruling the world

  5. Dragons and Serpents exist but they
    resemble us humans so much in body.
    To conclude, religious fanatics made
    up these tales and started killing them off. Its sad. A dragon is a symbol of
    earth in the humanity eye. That's all.

  6. Well that's all well and fine that you think that mr.S.M.D., but I'm not so sure. Ya so meybe there's no proof but,(go ahead call me insaine, not the first time in my life)maybe they lived/ing where we havent gone yet, read dragon rider by Cornilia Funka, or maybe their wing "bones" were so unsubstantial that they dissolved. Hey it's worth a try:)
