So only the wings sound draconian, I also believe it was a member of the pterosaur (Greek for "wing lizards") family, the flying reptiles of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods of history. :cool:And behold! it was a winged creature: if bird, then greater than all other birds, and it was naked, and neither quill nor feather did it bear, and its vast pinions were as webs of hide between horned fingers; and it stank. A creature of an older world maybe it was, whose kind, lingering in forgotten mountains cold beneath the Moon, outstayed their day, and in hideous eyrie bred this last untimely brood, apt to evil.
Sam's right about where the quote is from, it is from ROTK, Book 5, Chapter 6 entitled 'The Battle of the Pelennor Fields', just before it landed on Snowmane.that's interesting...I never really thought of them as lizardy...where'd that quote come from, Grondy?
(The Shadow of the Past, FoTR)It has been said that dragon-fire could melt and consume the Rings of Power, but there is not now any dragon left on earth in which the old fire is hot enough; nor was there ever any dragon, not even Ancalagon the Black, who could have harmed the One Ring, the Ruling Ring, for that was made by Sauron himself.
