Eurovenator by Hyrotrioskjan Eurovenator by Hyrotrioskjan
Before the middleages, this dragons were widespread across europe.
But between the 7th and 14th century a clan of dragonlayer (the holy Georg was one) decimate 92% of the population. After this the dragons change in the mind of humans.
Paolo Uccelo was one of the last that remember how dragons realy looks like.

He lived near a nest of the italian subspecies Eurovenator anglicus magnificus, known for their wonderful wings.
Today we have 240-250 specimens with 8 on the british islands (because of the many humans it's hard to bring them back)
with 6m in length it's longer than Uxuldraco but it's a worse flyer.

Also, I had an idea. Perhaps with your dragons the venom in highly flammable which would make some people in Medieval times think the dragons are breathing fire.

I thought about that but figured out that it would not make much sense because they would get a burned inner mouth. In addition you must know that dragon venom is similar to rattle snake venom and I never heard about a flammable substance in snake venom =)

Love this dragon series! My favorites are this one, Limatops, and Allopolestes! Are you going to continue with the series or is it finished?

I think I've come up with a common name for these: the mountain dragon.

I come up with "Common eurasian Wyvern", mountain dragon was already a name for a dragon species in "Dragons world" =)

That's where I got it from. Is the name "mountain dragon" trademarked by Animal Planet or something?
