D is for I Love Dragons
What's even cooler than a dragon tattoo? It's the serpentine figure depicted. I love the mythical creatures for a variety of reason. Mainly, because they're beautiful. Chinese dragons are my favorite for both their elegance and symbolism.
1. Dragons can be placed as far back as 4000 B.C.
2. Like a bird, like a plane, dragons can fly, and they are the largest creatures to do this.
3. As reported at Chinese Dragons, "The Chinese Dragon, or Lung , symbolizes power and excellence, valiancy and boldness, heroism and perseverance, nobility and divinity. A dragon overcomes obstacles until success is his. He is energetic, decisive, optimistic, intelligent and ambitious."
4. Where can you find dragons? You can find them in a wide variety of places such as caves or oceans.
5. Unlike other reptiles, dragons are homeothermic and don't require the sun.
