Think you can out run them? Think again,......they are as fast running up a hill, as a human is running, on flat land.
People continue to see this ancient creature, from time to time and insist that the Devil Dragon is still around. Unexplainable disappearances of numerous people, as well as suspicious prints found in the last known area the unfortunate person was in, lead us to believe it is feasting upon humans when the opportunity presents itself!
A farmer in Queensland Australia discovered bones on his land, that were later determined by specialists in the field, to belong to a Megalania. Paleontologists believed the bones to be only 300 years old!
In 1979, a Cryptozoologist by the name of Rex Gilroy, was called in to identify massive prints left in a freshly plowed field. A cast was made of what remained of the walking path the creature had taken, it matched what would be considered a Megalania, or...........a Devil Dragon!
October 12. 1968, Queensland, Australia, reports come in of a 40 foot long lizard!
1977, Townsville, Australia, campers are surprised and terrorized by a massive reptile. The tracks later found, indicate a 30 foot long animal! Newspapers ran with the story.
Another modern day account, speaks of a missing camper's watch and sandal, that were discovered along side of mysterious tracks,....... that could not be identified.
How could something so large be walking around and we are unable to readily see it?
The answer would be the pristine beauty and remoteness of the areas involved. The Daintree Rainforest in Australia contains 4,000 square miles of magnificent territory,.............containing 676 KNOWN species and............. only 78 people who call it home.
So, feel like walking into the wilderness to pick some fruit or stroll through the swaying tall grass of the fields? Better consider the area you are in before you do, ...............as Dragons think humans taste like chicken.
