FACTS OF INTEREST: The dragon myth is as old as recorded history. A Mesopotamian story tells that the heavens and earth were made from the body of a dragon whose blood became the human race. The word 'dragon' is derived from the Greek 'derkomai' meaning 'to see.' Dragons are thought to be very sharp-sighted -and sharp-witted. Dragons are found in myths throughout the world, often sharing some of the same characteristics of scaly bodies, coiling tails, wings and fiery breath. Many stories tell of the dragon's lair, where treasure is hoarded and baby dragons are hatched and fiercely protected.
