Full Answer

It is believed by scientists that the mythology of dragons began as a case of mistaken identity when looking at dinosaur fossils and animals that looked scary. Scientists point to the fact that the sheer size of dragons limit the possibility of its existence due to satellite imaging, camera technology and the lack of credible witness experiences. While both civilizations in the East and West hold dragons in their mythology, Western societies tend to look at dragons as threats, while Eastern societies revere them.
