Early dragons 1 by Hyrotrioskjan Early dragons 1 by Hyrotrioskjan
Dracovaranus was one of the first real dragons. It lives during the Eocene in the global rainforests. A very good conserved specimen was found in the sixties in Messel (Germany).
The only species that is older than this is a primitive animal from the late cretaceous.
The flight abilties of Dracivaranus were not so good, often it just gliding from tree to tree.

I would like to see the primitive creature from the cretaceous, probably from Europe right?

The oldest known dragons are from Appalachia, hyrotrioskjan.deviantart.com/a… here is one of them (the description is still outmoded, must change that)

Wonderful, great job. Would be interesting also to see a transitorial form between Coelurosauravus (the ancestor of the dragon lineage, right?) and this one :)

Coelurosauravus was the ancestor of the hypotetical 6-limb-dragons. This animal have monitor lizards as grandparents.

Oh ok, thanks for the advice.
Then a transitional species between monitor lizards and this little fellow would be very intriguin' ;)
