An interesting question. I think we really know so little of the true nature of organic life. Maybe I will buy a horse, sword and armour. Dragon slaying sounds like a thrill a minute and they write great stories about you too. Why is the dragon legend so persistent and universal. The theory of a Hollow or at least partially hollow earth might explain a lot of things if ever it could be accessed and explored. Meanwhile we have a pathetic little robot trundling around on Mars and sending back pictures of rocks for a bit until it a) gets hit by a camera shy rock b) the batteries run out c) it gets run over by a martian 18 wheeler. Why bother when so much of the earth is unknown.

Multiple reasons. For one it would theoretically get too hot. As you approach a core that is believed to be molten rock, it would get pretty toasty. Would play hell on any person or machinery that got close. Also just the sheer idea of digging so far would be difficult. You can't simply drill down. Whenever you make a hole, the matter that you replace (read this as big heavy rock) has to go somewhere. Assuming you don't want to plug the hole behind you, it would need to be transported back to the surface which abviously gets harder and harder as you go down.
As for the speculation of whether dragons could live in the core of the Earth...Assuming the core of the Earth is actually molten, which is not a very big leap of faith, then from what we know of biology, no, dragons could not live there. Organic life would not be able to exist at those extreme temperatures. Please no one respond by citing thermophylic bacteria on the volcanic ocean vents. These vents are nothing close to the temperature of being submersed in magma and a bacteria is no where near a dragon anyway.

No Offense, But Dragons never roamed the earth. THey were dino Fossils which people mistook for Dragons Easy mistake to make. Infact Greek Mythology seems to be based on it to. In the center of most city is greece , they had the bones of giants or something similar to a relic from a Mythological character.
They have found out that these bones were also Dinosaur bones. Things like the Griffen, look almost Identical to a Tricerotops bones.
SO in theroy I imagine a made up creature could live any where it wanted to

Even Dragons ???? I thought that dragons .. were made up of ... An Exoskeleton ... that was pretty much undestructible ??? Except at thier weak points ... Hence the reason they went into hiding. When they are flying is when us humas learned how to kill them. They open up ther wings ... and there ya go... you have thier chest. But when they were swimming ... thier wings would wrap around thier body creating a nice little preasurized sit if you will .... ... Yeah yeah I know ... none of you have ever seen them ... but ... Noone can say ... I have been there and ... Blah ..
