This topic was raised in the "Venting on hypocrisy" thread. Komodo dragons obviously exist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Komodo_dragons. A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to see a juvenile one on loan to the U.S.; I believe it was the same one that savaged Sharon Stone's ex-husband's white-tennis-shoe-clad foot. It's interesting that many cultures, e.g., the British and Chinese, have legends about dragons. So - are the Komodo dragons the last remnant of a formerly wide-spread species, or did some sort of dinosaur survive far past its contemporaries? Is "Nessie" a dinosaur, or a dragon? Could there have been a "fire-breathing" creature at some time?
