An actual reptile that existed in the creataceous period as the largest reptile of all. It evolved to swim in water and thus they didn't get entirely wiped out in the mass extinction by the meteor. Most of the remaining fish-like dragons moved to rivers and lakes in china. They moved ontowards land Thus giving the Ancient chinese' their long scaly like dragon symbol.). They were now long scaly dragons, with small useless fins. Evolution gave them back their wings and in medieval times, they flew around and actually did breath fire. (They had hydrogen chambers near the lungs and they ate a substance from mountainsides that causes a reaction to cause fire when mixed with the hydrogen.). Dragons died out near the end of the medieval time due to local kings getting angry at them for killing local livestock and whatnot. 2 dragon remains were found in the Carpathean mountains along with burnt dead and decayed warrior bodies. If you think i'm wrong, think about it. How did so many old civilizations have a dragon symbol? Was it just a coincidence? No. Did they ALL form their own mythological creature that was almost exactly alike in every civilization? Old artic people had a dragon symbol, and so did chinese people. They had no relationship or methods of contact. Coincidence? Very unlikely. My source Dragons : A fantasy made real, aired on Animal Planet in apri (I think).
Dragons existed. They were bigger than T-rexes. They ruled prehistoric times. Dominated the chinese. Dominated in the medieval period. We have physical proof. They aren't a myth. They were actual, flying, fire-breathing reptiles.

A mythical creature present in both western and eastern legends. Usually scaly, serpentine, have wings, and a crest of some kind.

Western legends show dragons in a fairly negative light. Most of the legends of dragons show them as fearsome, merciless beats who devour maidens, destroy villages, and keep hoards of treasures for which numerous knights attempt to slay the dragon in quests for either righteousness or personal wealth.

Eastern legends, however, show dragons in a much more positive sense. In most eastern areas, especially China and Japan, dragons are sacred beings of a snakes body, wings, a deer's antlers, and numerous other parts from other creatures rather than the modern day scaly, winged beasts. The eastern dragons are revered with honor and are considered symbols of wealth, strength, intelligence, and overall near-perfection.

The modern day dragon usually encapsulates the fearsome, strong, and proud looks of western myths and the intelligence, holiness, and strength of dragons in eastern myths. However, most dragons nowadays are used as signs of strength, majesty, honor, intelligence, etc.

A dragon is not a dragon unless he breaths fire.
If dragons existed, this world would be complete.

A somewhat mythical creature that was said to be slayed by european knights in medieval times, and were regarded as a symbol of good luck to the Chinese.

I just think they are really awesome.
Note: The below is in my Christian Creationist view, dont read this if you Are offended with my viewpoints. I am bombarded with evolutionist viewpoints on the internet each day, allow me to have my viewpoints, if you'd be so kind:

The Bible was known to mention dragons. In fact the old testament mentions the word dragon 21 times, take note of the mentioning specifically in the book of Job.

Take note that Job is the oldest book in the Bible:

Job 40:19 And of the leviathan, the greatest of the ocean animals, God said that even the leviathan could not "stand before me" Job 41:34,10

(The leviathan, also called a dragon, was noted as one of the greatest beasts, along with the behemoth, in the Old testement.)

Job was more than likely mentioning of the Dinosaurs that were living in his time.

Or, more specifically Job was probably mentioning a Whale (Hebrews translates this is "tanniynim" literally translated as Dragon, but this cant be as Job 41:1-34 mentions the Leviathan as a firebreather, (which is not surprising, as there is a beetle today which has an explosive-causing mechanism.)

The flame-breathing aspect of the above was probably a plesiosaur.
