    Default Puff the Magic Dragon?

    For decades I have been fascinated by the occurrence in the mythology of societies from three continents of dragons. (Europe, Asia and Africa)

    Watching a show on dinosaurs with my 4yo grandson I find that the skull of such a beast has actually been found!! What concerns me tho is that they have called the creature Dracorex Hogwartsia No joke!!!

    Dracorex Hogwartsia named after Hogwarts Castle 3D Interactive Model from Prehistoric Planet - Dinosaur and fossil news and features including interviews with paleontologists and interactive science modules

    I have always felt that in mythological terms, where there is smoke there is fire, and wonder whether the coexistence of neanderthals and homo sapien perhaps gave rise to myths of trolls???

    What else do you think we will discover?

    You may be smoking too much if you find it more interesting at this point than the actual topic.

    Did not ancient Hebrew lore speak of the "Nephelem" or some kind of "giant" species of mankind?

    If we could find a giant primitive man other than Neanderthal from the fertile crescent, that would be truly amazing to me.

    Also, miniature species of mankind, yet distinctly not simian, that would breed creedence to gnomes and dwarves... that would AWESOME!

    I waited my whole childhood to be kidnapped by Amazon warrior maidens and taken to the jungles of South America to be their drone, but alas that did not occur.

    It would be fantastic wouldn't it? Your lovely daughters might enjoy a picture of this skull. Miles was fascinated.

    Are you certain that the last wasn't a teen wish?
