My Dragon Philosophy
The world sees dragons in one of four ways.
(i) They were mythical beings that never existed
(ii) They were realistic creatures probably made up by seeing other animals (mermaid, gargoyle, ect.)
(iii) They existed.
(iv) They still exist.
Though highly unlikely that dragons still exist, I choose to believe number 4. Anyway, the first thing we see on a dragon of course is its wings. The wings, to provide lift, must be huge to be able to even lift the amount of weight that the dragon has. So, either the wings had to be gigantic or flap at really high speeds like a bumble-bees. Obviously, the wings do not flap at such high. speeds, therefore the wings had to be huge.
For the wings size, theyd have to be at least double the size of the dragon (if the dragon is the size we imagine them to be) to be able to provide sufficient power to lift the dragon off the ground. But, the dragon of course had many characteristics to help it
