My mother says that her aunt in Iran swore that she had seen a dragon in her village. This happened during my mother's aunts childhood days, and the
dragon was seen by everyone in the village. I'm just going to tell you briefly what my mother told me.
When her aunt was younger, she lived in a farm house in a tiny village of Iran. Near their house was a large pit that was always full of snakes. Every
afternoon, the sound of snakes whispers in the field were all that you could hear. There were snakes climbing all over walls, on the stairs, and on
the fruit trees that had to be picked.
One day, in the pit, they found that a dragon was lying motionless at the bottom. People observed for days, but no one was brave enough to go near it,
in fear that the dragon may actually be sleeping and not dead. A few men finally mustered up enough courage to start hitting it with long sticks and
rocks, but there was no reaction from the dragon. When they were certain that it was indeed dead, the dragon was carried onto a carriage and
transfered to another location through the village to be buried. She said that it gave off an awful stench, ever from far.
Women and children looked from atop of their houses in amazement, while the men walked along side the carriage. She described the dragon as very large
in size and that it had two horns on its head. I asked my mom if her aunt said anything about the dragon having wings, but she could not recall
whether her aunt ever spoke of wings on the supposed dragon.
Anyway, my mom said that if we do ever go back to Iran (if those stupid mullahs would just leave), she can take me to her aunts house to see the pit.
The house now belongs to her aunt, and she still lives in it. I really find this story fascinating because my mom had spoken to many people in that
village, and they all shared that same story with her.
So what do you think it may have been? Dragon or dinosaur? Perhaps some sort of reptilian? lol
