Or maybe our ideas about dragons came from ancestral memories dating back to earl mammals during the time of the dinosaurs? Or maybe it's because someone saw a lizard and thought "Holy **** , wouldn't it be cool if it breathed fire?" Could be a lot of things. But the buried skeleton thing sounds more like I guess.

You see , Mankind was proven to have a hive-memory that can be passed down for several generations. The old memories obviously get weaker with every generation and new ones are collected.

When the first humans arrived in Australia , Indonesia and Indochina , they encountered gigantic Lizards , their descendants still exist , and are about half their size. That family of Lizards are Varanids , the most commonly known Lizard of that family is the " Comodo Dragon ".

Anyway , because humans encountered those " Dragons " in large numbers , fairy tales were made about them , some are based on facts and others are just straight-up made up and because Dragons were omnipresent in many cultures , they never vanished from the hive-memory of mankind , unlike many other things.

On a related note : A few Dragons in Asia developed the ability to make pig noises to attract pigs to eat them. That's why some Asian cultures see Dragons as gods of lies and deception

With so many countries having dragon myths with so many similarities without having contact for so long, I just take it as circumstantial evidence that something akin to a large lizard with fire breath existed.

I remember watching the history channel when they had a documentary styled feature aimed at questioning historians and paleontologists, etc... on how a creature like this would have worked if it existed and what the odds were of it having existed.

The countries with said dragon myths that didn't have contact? Vastly different creatures. Japaense "dragons" didn't breath fire, and they looked like giant wingless worms with scales, same with Chinese and Korean. Aztec dragons had feathered wings, no legs, also didn't breath fire. Greek 'dragons' had multiple heads (Hydra, Scyllia), largely aquatic serpents. Your idea is very flawed.
