Mythical Creatures Series

When you think of dragons, do you imagine monstrous, serpent-like creatures that hiss and spit fire, or perhaps it’s a golden dragon who lives in a cave, guarding its treasure, or could it be wise dragon who holds the answers to the universe? Which ever one your picture, know this – dragon folklore differs greatly from one country to the next, and if you find yourself about to meet one, make sure you know exactly what you’re dealing with.

It’s been one year since I kicked off the Monday Mythology meme. And it was about time these mythological creatures finally gained their own, dedicated page on my blog. So, I’m introducing a new tab titled ‘Mythology’ along the top of this page, or click here to go there.
