Oooooooh... cool. Just to ask, is the Indoraptor's tail any shorter than it is in it's original picture, or is has it just been lowered?

I'm sorry to be nit-picky, but they are more Wyverniformes than Draconiformes, aren't they?

You will not find one traditionally dragon (to implausible) in this project, wyverns are the only plausible airworthy dragons that we can find in legends.
Every of my dragons based on the wyvern-schema.

I always thought that it is possible in the far future for fish to evolve two pairs of legs and a pair of legs. Have you seen the flish in the future is wild? :)

Indeed, flishes are possible, but thats because fishes have often more than 2 pairs of flippers.

I have seen interesting theories to support traditional dragon evolution, but it's obvious that choosing the wyvern model saves a lot of problems.

wow, this could be from a real science book! i love the brevibrachius, cause it shows how dragon wings developed or redeveloped

keep up the good work^^

Haha , varanids are secondarily flightless dragons? :)

Indeed, I first want that dragons are descendants of the varanids but than I read that the oldest varanids just 60 million years old, so I change my plans, and I must say the, I love the surprise factor now =D

Well, that means that in your classification the Komodo dragon is an actual dragon!

Hehe, yes, now it's not just a play on words =)

But how can that be? Some varanids like Ovoo, Estesia and Paleosaniwa appear way before the 60 million years border.

In that case are mosasaurs closer to the common ancestor of varanids and dragons or are they closer to varanids themselves, which would seem more logical because they evolved from Dallasaurus, a clearly varanid-like creature and the aigialosaurs are sometimes even considered real varanids...

Still love this type of speculative evolution!:D

Lizards like Paleosaniwa (varanidae) are the ancestors of the dragons, but dragons are the ancestors of Varanus.
