Oddly Opalescent Opaleye

So many of today’s myths were once legend, and I wonder if they have a basis in some ancient past. I wonder if real dragons once roamed the earth. Did the story of dragons begin with the sighting of dinosaurs? Did the story get passed down through oral history through the generations? We’ll never know for sure, but I choose to believe that in some way they once shared our earth.
The Opaleye is a medium-sized dragon, often weighing 2-3 tonnes. It was iridescent, pearly scales and pupil-less eyes that match, making it widely known as the most beautiful dragon around. It is not incredibly aggressive and produces a scarlet flame. Opaleyes prefer to eat sheep.* http://www.hp-lexicon.org/bestiary/dragons.html
