Dragons are still live?

the Mythology and history knows a large number of the diverse species of dragons, but any lizards, snakes and chameleons in a miniature reminding the look ancient images of dragons are of the greatest interest to us.

In Indonesia were found and live dragons - the huge monitor lizards living on the isolated Komodo`s island and reaching three meters in length were so officially called (the male 4,75 meters long was the biggest of the described copies). Researchers - naturalists established that quite recently monitor lizards of a bigger size - to ten meters - lived in Australia.

And the fright of the most incredible sizes lives in remote thickets of New Guinea, on belief of local hunters and natives. However, when in 80 - x years of the twentieth century it was succeeded to catch and photograph one of them, it turned out that new Guinean dragon hardly reaches three meters...

Throughout the last centuries already numerous attestations of eyewitnesses about meetings with a so-called huge sea dragon which descriptions can be found in the most competent scientific encyclopedia of the Ancient world - " continued to collect; Natural history Pliniya Starshego. History of this giant being of a zakhvatyvayushch is also instructive. It was seen by many hundreds of times in different points of the World Ocean, described to the smallest details, but still could not receive for research of any copy - live or dead.

Here one of typical meetings with a sea devil. It happened in 1893 near coast of Scotland and is described by the London doctor F. Mateson:

And here the certificate submitted by the captain of a military corvette Dedal which in the fall of 1848 followed from India to Plymouth. Having rounded the Cape of Good Hope and having headed for Saint Elena`s island, the captain Mack - Kua, most of officers of the ship and members of team within twenty minutes observed huge - to thirty meters - a drakonoobrazny being who appeared along the line a corvette.
