Real Life Chinese Dragon Discovered!
A snake with a single, clawed foot was recently discovered in China.
The first thing I thought of when I saw this picture was a Chinese dragon. Unlike their European counterparts, which are typically depicted as giant, winged, fire-breathing creatures, Chinese dragons are decidedly snake-like. They have long, serpentine bodies, small or no wings, and tiny legs. Take another look at that picture. It makes me wonder if this kind of bizarre mutation in a snake long ago inspired the description of that particular breed of dragon.
