Real Dragon Fossils on Display in China



This “China dragon fossil” has a pair of horns above its head and its shape resembles the legendary animal often described in books and stories. It was recently exhibited in the Xinwei Ancient Life Fossils Museum in Anshun, Guizhou.

Dragon-Fossil

Dragons have often appeared in Chinese legends and apparently, Chinese people are often called the “descendents of the dragon”. For a long time, scientists (and me) thought that the dragon was a fictional animal existing only in stories.

The China dragon was a reptile animal living in the ocean in the Triassic Period about 200 million years ago. It was an amphibian. It spent most of its time living in water, although sometimes it walked on land. In which case, it sounds like it didn’t fly and couldn’t breathe fire. Not the same – never mind.

    So saying this isnt real means that not only is the museum WRONG that has this on display but also the scientists who put the time and study into figuring out what it was and uncovering it….wow….unless you have a degree in anthropology, zoology, and have found one of these fossils and debunked it then shut the hell up. I mean really? really? You are smarter than the teams it took to not only uncover this beautiful specimen and display it….wow….run for president…………..without moving your way up the political levels…

    Mikaela, you are so naive. I am from China. All the mythology stories were not made up because of the fact that there are constellations of those from the stories, like Perseus,Cupid,Orion the hunter, even the phoenix bird and the Kraken has a constellation.There is one dragon that has a constellation as well. None of them were made up.Even I have seen a Dragon flying right below the clouds quite a few times as a matter of fact.

    I do believe in dragons, but I never believed the part of them spitting fire and such. Why? Well, because stories get altered when told down. Like
    this article mentioned, if they did exist, it would
    have been around 2000 trillion years ago, time
    period in which paper was not invented.

    The Aztecs have resemblance of them as well in their
    figures.
