  • There is no evidence dragons actually existed but in my opinion that doesn't mean some sort of flying lizard/dinosaur couldn't have been what people thought was a dragon back then.

    You have to wonder though even the greatest lies and myths have a kernel of truth in them, you have the wonder were the legends came from especially with there being so many all over the world and with them being very similar.

    Anyway the difference between dinosaurs and dragons at least the ones in myth is that dinosaurs there is great variety in terms of species, dragons are pretty consistent, mythological dragons breath fire, dinosaurs do not and so on and so on.

    • So explain to me (in your own words) how they are different. And i mean other than the fact that one was real and the other one isn't.

    • Well apart from the obvious: Dragons are reptile creatures, dinosaurs aren't. Dragons have wings, they can fly, they breathe fire.
      There are also Wyverns, those are basically dragons but they only have two legs.

  • Dragons can fly and breather fire, while dinosaurs can't (except for a few species which can fly). And yeah, dinosaurs were real, whereas dragons have always been fictitious.

  • Dinosaurs once roamed the world many years ago
    and Dragons have never been known to really exist
    it remains to be seen but than you hear about them
    still finding Dinosaur eggs but who as they say history
    repeats itself and you never know what we will hear next
    i believe them things in Bible are coming true we are living
    in the last days

  • Dinasours-prehistoric animals that roamed around the world a long long time ago.
    Dragons-Strong scales, some breath fire (depending on element), some fly. They are usually fantasy based.

    • that's the difference? as opposed to one having existed and one definitely didn't

    • Show All
    • @madhatters4 People originally thought dinosaur bones were dragon bones thus scientists had to define how dinosaurs and dragons are not the same.

    • so are you really trying to argue a proven fact vs an unproven fact?

      no words are not set in stone by divine law they are set in stone by logic. the logic is simple dinosaurs existed, dragons have not been proven to exist. when they are proven then we can begin to compare the two

  • Dragons are mythical beings, they usually breathe fire, they can fly, or even talk, some of the dragons have two or three heads etc, while dinosaurs were real animals, they have extinct about 60 millions of years ago.

  • well one is confirmed real the other is not. Dragons have wings and can breath fire. only a few dinosaurs were able to fly and none were able to breath fire

  • dinosaurs had feathers. I think dragons were just large snakes and lizards most likely.

  • One existed and the other is made up.

    One can fly (well some dinosaurs could too but those dinosaurs don't resemble dragons) and the other can't.

    One breaths fire and the other can't.

  • Dinosaurs are real creatures which lived on this planet milliards of years ago while dragons are fictional creatures that fly and breath fire. There are dragon species that can fly, but obviously can't breath fire.

  • Well, dinosaurs actually existed while dragons are purely mystical creatures, means they probably never existed - unless you mean the gecko kind of dragons..
