Since people don't care as much about the discovery of new dinosaur bones as they used to Chinese paleontologists have decided to step up their game- by digging up the skeleton of a dragon.
This 60-foot-long skeleton was "discovered" in the city of Zhangjiakou in Northern China's Hebei province, and while some say it's an obvious hoax the dragon lovers among us want to believe.
Here's more about the discovery from Mysterious Universe:
A translation of the story at wukong.com says the skeleton measured about 60 feet long with a horned skull and two tiny arms at the neck-body joint. The long thin serpentine body matches the Chinese version of dragons rather than the Game of Thrones or flying lizard types.
However, the skull seems more like an antelope and some witnesses thought the bones looked like they were from multiple cows and pieced together to fool the public or be used in a movie or TV show. While the Chinese have long revered dragons and tell many scary stories of them, these witnesses didn’t seem reverent or afraid, as evidenced by a photo of two guys trying to ride it.
Well, those two guys seem to believe it's truly a dragon and that's good enough for me! *wink*
