NORTH WALES - An authentic skeleton of what scientists admit "must be the dragon of myth and legend" has been unearthed by archaeologists in the Snowdonia region. The bones are dated to be about 2000 years old, which rules out the possibility that these are dinosaur remains. The Red Dragon has been the symbol of Wales since unrecorded time, and this discovery is now giving a boost to Welsh national pride, with their symbol actually being based on an actual historical creature.
"We've always considered them to be mere mythical creatures and nothing more," says Prof. Dr. Fisher of the University of Bangor, "we always assumed their myths to be based on dinosaur remains that ancient people might have unearthed. This discovery tells us that the creatures aren't mythical, they actually existed at one point."
But the discovery of this dragon skeleton raises more questions than answers for the scientific world. Scientists are now investigating the possible cause of death for this dragon, in order to determine the reason why its species might have gone extinct. It is not ruled out that so-called "Dragon Slayers", medieval Christian knights such as the legendary St. George, may have been responsible for wiping out the dragon species from the earth entirely. Scientists are now also more interested in investigating the Loch Ness monster story, as more dragon remains are hoped to be discovered at the bottom of the famous lake in Scotland.
