Flavaalae wellnhoferi by Hyrotrioskjan Flavaalae wellnhoferi by Hyrotrioskjan
During the early Pliocene this species arrive in the skys to dominate the marine ecosystem over the waves, with 7,2 meter wingspan it just need to flap one or two times the hour to glide over dozens of kilometers.
Flavaalae is a missing link between Megaceloxus and Volatiosuchus. The wings are longer, the legs are spreadable to help the animal while landing. The tail is still long, even longer than that of Megaceloxus, but the marks ot the bones suggest that the tail crests increase too.
Flavaalae is known from Venezuela and Sri Lanka.

Well, the pterosaurs had some very efficiant sailers, birds too, and their anatomy is all based on the same laws of nature =)

Thanks for putting Sri Lanka on the map for dragons,....although this does NOT resemble the makara of Lankan myth and art but who cares? Cool thought :icondragonlaplz:

I really thought long about a way how I could trnasform the Makara into an own species but end up with the explanation that it was inspired by several animals (sea serpants, the Buru, elepfants, Ganges Gharial and maybe in some regions the south asian river dolpin)

Flavaalae is a small compensation.

Well, thanks for the effort :) And in art, the makara is a composition of lion paws, elephant trunk and head, fish or crocodilian body, bird winds, monkey eyes, horse ears and large, pointed teeth. A Flavaalae with a turkey-like dewlap would be pretty weird in any case though...plenty of animals in art and sculpture thay have absolutely no basis in biology, it seems

Indeed, I also declare some european myth as... still myth, like the griffon or the chimera.

It hink it is wise to leave some myths as myths instead of trying to discover the truth behind everything. Let mysteries be mysteries at times

ich kann mir irgendwie gut vorstellen wie dieser drache über seen segelt und sich ein paar fische schnappt. Der Kopf gefällt mir hier sehr gut, erinnert mich an einen spinosaurier.:)
Sag mal ,hättest du was dagegen wenn ich mal einen von deinen bisherigen drachen zeichne? Natürlich würd ich nen link zum original einfügen :)

Possibly my favourite so far... very pterosaur-like. :) It's only a shame that you draw almost all of them on the ground and very rarely a dragon in flight.:(

It probably eats mostly fish. It's ancestors were capable of trans-atlantic trips, and lived in the mangrove forests that exited in Egypt at the time, while it's descendants are sort of the albatrosses of the dragon world- not really leaving the sea and living entire off of what the sea provides.

Also, is it just me or are you coloring these last works with traditional methods instead of using the computer?
