THE GIANT LIZARD

varanus-priscus-megalania-size

The Komodo Dragon has been the iconic giant lizard of the modern age, but thousands of years ago it had a much larger cousin: Megalania. In the Pleistocene era, Megalania was an apex predator that ruled Australia, growing between 20 to 30 feet in length. One could argue that it was this beast that inspired some of the legends of dragons. With this in mind, I am thinking of including this creature or something similar in my fantasy book and it will be the terror of the earth!

  1. I love the Komodo dragon.
    😄 But I doubt they existed in wales over a 1000 years ago (home of the red dragon).

    Dragons: You can’t prove they existed but, you can’t prove they didn’t exist.
