Palaeontologist finds evidence on existence of dragons!
Dragon Zoo has found a great documentary on Animal Planet, The Last Dragon, that discusses the evidence of the existence of dragons! This fantastic documentary shows the story of the respected palaeontologist Dr. Jack Tanner and his analysis of a T-Rex skull that he found. The skull of the dinosaur was shown to have three distinct marks on the top. Could they be the result of a dragon attack from the air? Could they be the marks of three giant dragon talons swooping down and hitting the T-Rex from above? The palaeontologist believed so.
The documentary goes on to discuss traces of carbon deposits on either side of the T-Rex’s skull. This carbon was suggested as proof that it was scorched by fire. Had the T-Rex been in a fight with a dragon? Had the dragon breathed fire at the dinosaur after its attack from above? The evidence of carbon deposits certainly suggests so.
We really recommend this documentary for any enthusiasts of dragons or dinosaurs. This makes a welcome change from the usual fantasy fair that we have to watch to see a dragon on our TV screens. There’s no Vikings, no swords and armour, just great science, great animation and a well put together and insightful documentary on the potential existence of pre-historic dragons.

"After initial analysis, Tanner notes that the creature has a scaly hide and a tail, suggesting a reptile, but also has wings and foot talons, characteristics of powered flight. When he finds the wings, he wonders if the creature could really fly, as its wingspan is too small to allow flight. After further investigation, Tanner finds that the bones of the creature have a honeycomb structure, which would allow for flight, being hollow but strong. Internal scans of the creature show a huge heart, needed to pump oxygen-rich blood to the chest muscles during hard work, and two bladder-like structures. Tanner suggests that they could be gas bladders: the gas contained inside is hydrogen, which is lighter than air and would give the creature extra lift. He tells his associates that the creature has everything needed for flight."
