Quetzalcoatl—Nahuatl/Aztec for “feathered serpent” is thought to be a dragon myth. Mayans call the feathered serpent Kukulkan. Scientists claim that dinosaurs were feathered. What if feathered dinosaurs survived in remote places until recent centuries? What if the dragon myths are merely memories of feathered dinosaurs?

Loch Ness Let Down

Researchers from Pictland College, Scotland discovered that Nessie is NOT a prehistoric dinosaur. This will destroy the Scottish tourism industry. Nessie is a garden-variety of English dragon, not at all unusual. (St. George did not slay all the dragons)

Dragons?

Tonight (March 9) is a Super Full Moon, a bigger than ordinary full moon. It also called the the Worm Moon–perhaps Wyrm Moon, an old word for dragon. Cherokees call it Windy Moon, Anuyi ᎠᏄᏱ, not a surprise.

Be careful of stomping on these worms! A Lindworm is a wingless serpentine monster with 2 clawed upper arms, a dragon-like head, and scales. In Britain it is a slithering dragon, and in Scandinavia it is a sea serpent. Handle with care. Better yet, run/swim for your life.

The most famous Lindworm was Fafnir. He was a dwarf who got on the wrong person’s bad side and was changed into a Lindworm. Sigurd slayed him.

(Sorry, I could not find photos, the last is Fafnir)

I am under a druid’s curse! I must write about Lindworms!
