World of Dragons

Dragons are some of the coolest mythical creatures out there! Despite being make-believe, dragons and similar beasts have appeared in stories and legends around the world. Real animals, whether dinosaurs or animals alive today, may have been the inspiration for dinosaurs. However, it is certainly peoples’ imaginations that have made dragons truly unique and fascinating.
