The Concept of Dragon has always been a topic of fascination for the people around the world. Could this video be the evidence of real dragons in the Tibet?

If we turn pages back to the history there have been clues about dragons in ancient texts. “Dainel was said to kill a dragon in the apocryphal chapters of the Bible’’. Nevertheless, ancient civilizations have depicted them, believing that they were like any exotic animal. Apparently, dragons were thought to be useful and protective but when Christianity spread, people started to see them in a new light. There are even explanations in artworks drawn by ancient civilizations from long ago. So dragon’s existence have always been a question for the world?
