Yes, his name is mantelli. But why?
In the year of its discovery, historians find a conserved carcass in an old secret archives and lab under the former home of Mantell.
Gideon was one of the first paleontologists but also one of the first dracologists. He was writing an article about a species that his son Walter sent hin from New Zealand. Today we know this species as Dinodactylus.

Tarimhesaurus is a near relative of Confuciosaurus. The animals live at the Tarim he river and near the Irtysch, especial at the Buchtarma reservoir. Like Confuciosaurus they hunt fish and other aquatic animals.
After the diversion for irrigation, many dragons lose their habitat.
Today we have just 439 individuals in free nature.

I love these dragon series you are doing, man. :) Good artwork, ingenious ideas and frequent updates. Best DA gallery you have.:D
Perhaps you can also work on Korean dragons as well. We have a few dragon-type creatures.
Yung No, a type of giant lesser dragon, with blue scales and blunt horns. It is said to feed on almost everything, including humans.
Kang-Chul, another lesser dragon, but more aerial. Unlike most Eastern dragons, it is associated with fire rather than water.

These dragons could have also evolved from an archosaur, crocodile or lizard with pterosaur-type webbing between its digits...

So do these dragons have very potent venom? Couldn't iamgine that they would use it very often on fish...

Confuciosaurids have venom glands, but they are very rudimentary.

In the first stage of the project, want add them too, but than I thought, it's too implausible that a animal get 6 limbs, flight and fire.
My evolution theory for this group was that they evolove from small diapsids like the Coelurosauravus.

well u see i think thay cam from a gliding lizard. they found 1 a few years ago thats got a long neck and was related to Tanystrfias. seeing as thats the same family group as snakes the fire and other "breth wepons" could be modified venome. such as 1 that combusets in air. the "flight fins" on there sides wer flexible and i thearise much like fish befor them the wings evolved from those fins. also in my Dragon family tree there also related to Pegases, Grifens, Gargoials and possibly Centors. i do like ur flying Theropods and or Raptors. oh and ur Dinosaur park is amazing. i want to open a park like that with people and animals in realy good cosstumes as well as robots that can rome around there encoser un like the animatronic dinos u see in other parks
