Do Dragons exist? – Curious Questions with Answers | Educational Videos by Mocomi Kids

Do Dragons Exist? What exactly are dragons? Stories of Dragons have existed since the
time stories were told. Dragons generally are said to have wings,
scales and claws and breathe fire. They are also thought be majestic creatures
of mystery and Magic. Different cultures have varying stories. The Europeans early on thought of them as
sea creatures and had maps depicting them waiting to eat unsuspecting sailors at the
edge of the earth. Generally the dragons were thought of as bringers
of destruction and terror often depicting them as hoarders of treasure or maidens or
both. At the other side of the planet the Japanese,
Koreans and Chinese revered and worshipped them as mythical creatures who brought wisdom,
prosperity and good luck. Japanese ones are water deities and celestial
beings associated with rainfall and bodies of water, and are typically depicted as large,
wingless, serpentine creatures with clawed feet. Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent
and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. Has there been proof that dragons existed? Well, ancient people may have discovered dinosaur
fossils and understandably misinterpreted them as the remains of dragons. Chang Qu, a Chinese historian from the 4th
century B.C., mislabeled such a fossil and gave credibility to the myth of dragons. A Stegosaurus, was a giant beast, 30 feet
in length and typically 14 feet tall and was covered in armored plates and spikes for defense. Even in a small town of Austria they mistook
the skeleton of the ancient Rhino and called it dragons. A statue of a dragon still stands in the middle
of the town square. Humans usually try to find meaning in things
they can’t explain. The closest thing we can call to actual dragons
is the Komodo Dragon, not entirely a dragon but fearsome anyway. So we know that the dragons are fictional
but as they say, there is no smoke without fire.
