Sept 12, 2016: Last month in August, a YouTube video that featured a monolithic dragon corpse, went viral on the social media and it was shared by Radio Valley 99, a radio station in Bhutan, which attracted millions of people and once again made people think of dragons in Tibet. 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?

Scientists even do not completely disagree with the concept of dragons but they are not considered as real as dinosaurs who walked the earth millions of years ago. The skeptical behavior of Researchers about the idea of dragons is due to their giant structure because they are too giant to fly.
