A LITTLE ABOUT DRAGONS
Nobody has ever found a fossil of a dragon, and no one has ever seen a real one. So, it’s sensible to say that they don’t exist and never have. But that shouldn’t be a reason for us to stop loving them. Who doesn’t adore How to Train Your Dragon’s Toothless? How about the Lord of the Rings icon Smaug?
Generally, dragons are pictured as malevolent monsters representing greed. However, alongside that, they symbolize luck, strength, and power. We no longer see them as completely evil since popular culture introduced us to their soft side, too. Dragonheart’s Draco is definitely one of the most good-natured dragons we saw on screen.
Gone are the days of their wicked reputation. Dragons are now regarded as the embodiment of power and good fortune. In Feng Shui, it is said that placing a photo of a dragon in a home acts as protection from negative energy while drawing good luck and good energies.
There are different kinds of dragons in mythology and folklore. Two of the most popular ones are Oriental Dragons which were believed to inhabit East Asia, and the Western Dragon, which supposedly existed in the Western part of America. It seems like there is a type of dragon in every part of the world. Experts suggest that maybe the ideas of their existence came about because of the discoveries of dinosaur fossils and other prehistoric reptiles.
Dragons lived in deep pools, haunted forests, mountains, and dank caves. Others lived in the deepest parts of the oceans. If you want to see one in real life, you should meet a Komodo Dragon someday (from afar, of course!). That’s the closest you can ever get to a dragon in real life. Komodo Dragons are a monitor lizard species that is endemic to Indonesia. These animals are apex predators that can reach 10 feet in length and weigh approximately 150 pounds.
Dragons may not be real, but it doesn’t mean we can’t consider them as spirit animals to boost our strength and confidence. Why don’t you turn your appreciation for them into a hobby? With these dragon coloring pages, you can translate your admiration for them into amazing works of art. You can do these with children, too!
