An Introductions To Dragons

Hi Everyone,

Recently I realized that dragon legends, like stories of the flood, are worldwide, and found in nearly every culture.  Dragons have intrigued people since the beginning of time.  Over the next year I plan to pass along little tidbits each month about these mysterious, mythical creatures.

First off, dragons are indigenous all over the world except the sea and oceans.  Yes, the pictures of a dragon in the water is common in old maps, but that's a sea serpent . . . not a dragon.  Sea seperents do not breathe fire, cannot fly, or hoard treasure.  Those are dragon traits.

Dragons are classified by habitat.  There are six main areas where dragons can be found.  They are forest, prairie, deseert, mountain, artic and jungle.  They are also broken into western dragons and eastern dragons.  While the species are closely related, there many differences between them. 

Be prepared to be fascinated by these creatures.  Some people will beieve in them immediately, some won't, but since I'm a person who believes knowledge is power . . . does.

Let me know what you think.
