Legends portray these mythical monsters which are characteristic of a snake or reptile and having huge wings. They are typically a frightening site with a crest on its head, long talons, typically bearing razor sharp teeth and flames or poison shooting from its gigantic mouth. Their bodies are covered in scales, with fear provoking eyes that burn in a red or yellow glow. It’s been used in many venues in the media, TV and movies to define one’s ‘mother-in-law’ however that’s not the context we are referring too right now.
The media has used the winged reptile image in movies such as Harry Potter as a threat and challenge to the young wizard. Then there are the simple happy dragons that will show up in children’s movies and television. These are non-threatening looking but have similar characteristic to the creatures from mythology. Is anyone old enough to remember ‘Puff the Magic Dragon?’
