Nice! Now that we are back on topic, I have a theory that humans are fascinated (though not enamored) by creatures with reptilian and mammalian characteristics. Dragons are often depicted holding themselves high off the ground like mammals instead of of sprawling like lizards, and have bat-like wings. Chinese dragons are even shown with fur. Dinosaurs also have mammal (really bird-like) characteristics as well, and they are also creatures that fascinate humanity. Of course, being big and powerful also helps.
