Types of dragons

Although dragons occur in many legends around the world, there are strong differences between the various monsters that have been grouped together under the dragon label. Some dragons are said to breathe fire or to be poisonous. They are commonly portrayed as serpentine or reptilian, hatching from eggs and possessing typically scaly or feathered bodies.

European dragons are more often winged, while Chinese dragons resemble large snakes. Dragons can have a variable number of legs: none, two, four, or more when it comes to early European literature. Let's examine the main types of dragons. Visit Monstropedia, the Monstrous Encyclopedia for a more exhaustive list of creatures.
