False Dragon Concept

Due to convergent evolution this creature has evolved to look remarkably similar to true dragons. True dragons evolved from dinosaur like creatures in our world. From these dinosaurs both birds and dragons come but lizards do not. This false dragon has evolved to fill a large predator void on an isolated island away from any dragon population. They are very good at gliding, but not terribly great with actual flying or taking off. Often they climb up into the canopy of their forests and jump off to fly.

Yet another piece for *NuclearBandaid's and my world building project.

this actually reminds me of what i think charizard is, what if charizard isnt a suposted to be a dragon but a salamander that LOOKS like a real dragon

Salamanders aren't reptiles but I get your point.

Hm, that's a rather unique looking dragon. And I like the story behind them too.
