Superstitious villagers convinced dragons are real after discovering 60ft skeleton of ‘mythical creature’

Villagers in northern China believe they have discovered the 60ft skeleton of a dead dragon. Traditional Chinese dragons have no wings, and are depicted ‘swimming’ through the air, rather than flapping their wings, as shown in Western mythology.

This depiction has convinced the residents of Zhangjiakou City, in China’s northern Hebei Province, that they had stumbled across a dragon.


The dragon 'skeleton' which villagers believe they have found


Footage taken by various witnesses at the scene shows dozens of villagers surrounding the suspected dragon remains, which start with a large skull, two tiny arms and then extend further along the grass.

The villagers are not sure what to make of the skeleton, but a superstitious few seemed convinced that they were indeed looking at the remains of the mythical creature.


But many think it was a movie prop that has been left behind


Chinese social media said the ribby skeleton appeared to have been placed there intentionally, perhaps as a prop for a movie, but so far no one has come forwards to confirm these claims.
