Dragon-twitcher Sarah Bowerman spotted this voyeur bathhouse dragon and asked whether the Loch Ness Monster counts.
Firstly, clearly this water dragon is not the Loch Ness Monster: it’s not in Loch Ness, but also: it may well have feet – we can’t see much of it. The Latin for ‘serpent’ and ‘dragon’ were the same word: draco. As we have said a few times: ‘dragon’ is an umbrella term.
However: this dragon appears to be creeping and – if the women in the picture are not down with that: it’s not OK. .
