You may think you know about dragons right? Mythical flying, fire-breathing monsters. No. A recent discovery by yours truly has revealed that dragons are REAL! And if they are extinct, then they would have died out 40 years ago. Mythical, I think NOT!

 True Dragons - Draconidae

The Chinese dragon - Draconis pulmoriens     

 The  Chinese Dragon is the largest of the True Dragons, females reaching up to 42 feet in length. They inhabit the cool bamboo forests of China, feeding off of deer, cattle, and the occasional panda, explaining the decline in panda population.

Appearance: Like that of an enormous snake with four legs, horns like a deer, and transparent membranes between the claws with which to glide. 

Size: Adult males grow between 30 to 37 feet in length, females at a staggering 40 to 42 feet at maturity.  

Color: Colors vary from black, white, red, blue, green, gold, and turquoise.

 Sociality: Chinese dragons are very solitary and territorial animals, preferring to live alone.*  

Defenses: Fiery breath, claws, teeth, constriction. 

Range: Central China, stretching across to east and west edges, and also Japan. 

Habitat: Bamboo forest or small mountain. 

Lair: Cave or enclosure of bamboo. 

Diet: Large mammals, all types of cattle, large reptiles, large birds, bird and reptile eggs. 

Flight: No technical flight possible, but can glide up to 60 feet using membranes between its claws and skin on its sides. 

Note: It should be known that a great majority of Asiatic "dragons" are in fact extraterrestrial spacecraft.      

 The European dragon - Draconis occasus

 The European dragon is perhaps the most widely recognized type of dragon. They once dwelled unchallenged throughout  Europe, but now are restrained only to small remote areas, or may even be extinct.

 Appearance: Like a huge lizard with bat's wings and horns. 

Size: Adult males can grow between 19 and 22 feet long, and females can grow up to 26. 

Color: Varying colors include black, white, red, blue, green, and gold.

 Sociality: Very solitary, and prefers to live alone.* 

Defenses: Fiery breath, claws, teeth, powerful tail. 

Range: In 1100 and earlier, all over Europe and into Russia, but since the Great Dragon Slaying, dragon populations in Europe have been forced into only the most remote areas. 

Habitat: Forests and mountains.

 Lair: Cave or nest of thorns and bushes. 

Diet: Cattle, small to medium sized mammals, large birds, and large reptiles. 

Flight: Wings, assisted by the specialized Incendraco organ, heights of 75 to 200 feet can be reached.

The Antarctic dragon - Draconis glacies

The Antarctic dragon is a very rare type of dragon, living only in the bone-chilling cold of the Antarctic Cirlce. To withstand the blistering chill of their homeland, the Antarctic will dig deep caverns into the glaciers.

Appearance: Very much like that of the European, with the exception that the Antarctic is quite a bit smaller and has developed a ridge of feathers down the head and back for extra warmth.

Size: Adult males average between 14 and 17 feet in length, females commonly reaching 18 to 20.

Color: Almost exclusively white, though sometimes a dull gray or silver.

Sociality: Almost totally solitary.

Defenses: Fire breath, teeth, claws, powerful tail, and a tendency that if near water it will seize its prey and drown it.

Range: The Antarctic Circle, exact territory distribution unknown.

Habitat: Frozen wastes of Antarctica.

Lair: Cave dug into glacier, entrance sometimes being underwater.

Diet: Anything it can find (they prefer seals and penguins).

Flight: Flies less than the European, but will commonly swim. In the frigid air, heights of only around 100 ft. can be reached by flight. Can swim at 26 knots at a distance of 20 miles.

The amphithere - Draconis quetzalcoatl

Appearance: Like a huge feathered snake with wings.

Size: Males and females are of similar size, unlike most dragons. The amphithere averages between 35 and 38 ft. in length. Their wingspan is commonly between 72 and 78 ft. across.

Note: It should be known that a great majority of Amphithere and "feathered serpent" myths are actually extraterrestrial spacecraft.

The American wyvern - Draconis vacuutelum

The dwarf dragon - Draconis minimus

The giant desert dragon - Draconis gigantes

Note: It is quite possible that the myth from which the account of this species is derived may actually be an ancient depiction of an extraterrestrial spacecraft.

 Pseudo-dragons - Pseudraconidae

 The Leviathan - Pseudraconis magnusuchus
