Here be dragons


Dragon pointed out this article from The Guardian to me:
I told him he should get his own blog but the keyboarding thing is challenging for him.

Frightening new predator found in the homeland of the dragon


"Balaur is a new breed of predatory dinosaur, very different from anything we have ever known," said Stephen Brusatte of Columbia University in New York, co-author of the research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

...

The Romanian link with dragons was perpetuated in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series. The character Ron Weasley's brother Charlie worked at the world's largest dragon reservation in Romania."

Dragon is scoffing at the term "mythology" and "legend" in the article.

So nice of you to let Dragon use Book Moot for this important bit of info. He is right to scoff at mythology and legend...obviously!

:D
