Tarimhesaurus by Hyrotrioskjan Tarimhesaurus by Hyrotrioskjan
Yes, his name is mantelli. But why?
In the year of its discovery, historians find a conserved carcass in an old secret archives and lab under the former home of Mantell.
Gideon was one of the first paleontologists but also one of the first dracologists. He was writing an article about a species that his son Walter sent hin from New Zealand. Today we know this species as Dinodactylus.

Tarimhesaurus is a near relative of Confuciosaurus. The animals live at the Tarim he river and near the Irtysch, especial at the Buchtarma reservoir. Like Confuciosaurus they hunt fish and other aquatic animals.
After the diversion for irrigation, many dragons lose their habitat.
Today we have just 439 individuals in free nature.

I love these dragon series you are doing, man. :) Good artwork, ingenious ideas and frequent updates. Best DA gallery you have.:D
Perhaps you can also work on Korean dragons as well. We have a few dragon-type creatures.
Yung No, a type of giant lesser dragon, with blue scales and blunt horns. It is said to feed on almost everything, including humans.
Kang-Chul, another lesser dragon, but more aerial. Unlike most Eastern dragons, it is associated with fire rather than water.

These dragons could have also evolved from an archosaur, crocodile or lizard with pterosaur-type webbing between its digits...

So do these dragons have very potent venom? Couldn't iamgine that they would use it very often on fish...

Confuciosaurids have venom glands, but they are very rudimentary.
