Scientists have discovered a winged dinosaur .Here be dragons !

Dinosaur find: Velociraptor ancestor was 'winged dragon'
By Victoria Gill Science reporter, BBC News

Scientists have discovered a winged dinosaur - an ancestor of the velociraptor - that they say was on the cusp of becoming a bird. The 6ft 6in (2m) creature was almost perfectly preserved in limestone, thanks to a volcanic eruption that had buried it in north-east China.And the 125-million year-old fossil suggests many other dinosaurs, including velociraptors, would have looked like "big, fluffy killer birds". But it is unlikely that it could fly.

So was this origin of dragons ? Where they really winged dinosaurs? Interesting thought for a Friday.
