And then you've got researchers that still use the excuse: Dragons couldn't exist, nothing that big can fly.

unless dragons used bird or pterosaur like wings and not the classic bat wing design and were ultra light, had hollow bones and stored hydrogen in their air bladders along with no armor plating (waaay too heavy) then yes, they were right, but even then the biggest it could be would be around 40-60 feet long *depending on neck and tail length) and at the most 800 lbs

I'm pretty sure those are actually wyverns rather than dragons.
Like how the dragons on Skyrim aren't technically dragons, the forelimbs of wyverns are the wings and they usually have a barbed tail with spikes.

I'm probably wrong though.

No you're right, usually a dragon with only four limbs is considered a "Wyvern"

But These are "biologically feasible", meaning six limbs is a No-no for vertebrates. The so called "classic" dragons you're thinking of could not exist for three reasons, One the pectoral muscles dedicated to flying, and to the actual fore limbs of a hexa-pedal dragon means double the muscle and would place so much mass on the anterior of the torso, take off would be impossible. Two, there are no vertebrates with six true limbs, and thus no source for the second pair of fore limbs to evolve into wings. And three, if a second pair did exist, they would have to attach to the scapula, because there aren't any other solid plate like bones on the dorsal side of a vertebrate skeleton so this would made the movement of the scapula limited and render the front "legs" useless anyways

If a 'classic" dragon did exist it's wings would probably come from a modified, extended rib cage and it would glide more than actually fly

Correct me using science when I think out loud here.
One: I don't doubt there might be some biological method of having muscle that's so incredibly efficient that it has maybe twice the strength with half the density. Maybe no creatures on this planet, but maybe on another where the common ancestor was totally different.
Two: same thing with the aliens. And I'm sure that even if there's no source for it, something could develop it without something already there. I don't know, I'm pretty much just pulling things out of my ass here.
Three: I know the common thought of dorsal wings shows them attaching there, but maybe they could attach lower on the back? Like, maybe above the hips. It would be some crazy arrangement of muscle down there and it would cause whatever it is to fly quite awkwardly, but it's just a thought. Maybe even somewhere in the middle, like bony plates at the bottom of the rib cage. Actually no, forget that last part, that sounds like a bad idea.

Whatever, I don't know.

I said Pterosauria.
Pterosaurs were flying reptiles of the clade or order Pterosauria.
Pterodactylus is a genus of pterosaurs.

dude, If that happened, we would all die. Mosasaurs would make the ocean impassable, large predators would make land a nasty place to live, and the air critters ate creatures our size, so they would probably see us as a food source.

actually we don't see **** like this today, because back then, the oxygen level in atmosphere was around 70-80% (now it's 20%) which allowed huge creatures to exist (Also the bugs back then were the size of today's dogs)

On top of that, Dinosaurs managed to exist over 180 million years, which is a ******** of time for plenty of ridiculous-looking creatures to evolve. Just to get any grasp of how ******* long time that is, the time difference between Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus is greater than between T-rex and today.


So no, we don't see it as normal. We even have some ridiculous creatures today, they're just very rare and mainly they're not 3 story building high.

There's so much guessing in these, but they pretty much collect the bones, think 'how would this creatures muscles and size be' then build it up in a way that makes sense. Then they speculate on how they mustve lived based off it's build, maybe associate it with other bones. Colors, we dont know. Its been found that there were small things somewhere that comes from a feathercoat, so we give some of them feathery coats. Guesswork and thinking, that's all we have

The best troll, the best at ruining of lives, the most feared, WRONG. For, the true Anonymous will rise again, and our power will be twice as strong! For, behind the masks, we are invisible. You will know our presence, you will feel our wrath, and you will know what it truly means to be encountered by Anonymous! Come, my fellow anonymous brothers, join me in our quest to regain the glory we were once so acclaimed to have. I offer my hand to you, brothers. Anonymous.
