Did Primitive Man co-exist with Dinosaurs ? Dragons are a recurring theme in Human Mythology. They are very ancient, very wide spread and trans cultural. The legends match the fossil record we have of Dinosaurs.
Theoretically over many millennia of evolution, members of any species - human beings inclusive - will develop an instinctive fear and respect of their natural enemies, the predators that seek to devour them. Perhaps that is one reason Dragons are so prevalent in Human Mythology. Perhaps also not all Dinosaurs are extinct and some remnant of the Dinosaur Realm Lingers on till this very day.
