Legends of fire breathing dragons have fascinated people for centuries and appear in cultures all over the world throughout history. Firebreathing dragons exist in artwork and literature, but is it possible that they also existed in real life?

It seems possible that all these legends might have been based on a real creature, specifically a dragon or dinosaur-like creature that had biological mechanisms which allowed it to breathe fire.

The ancient Egyptian civilization lasted over 3,000 years and during that time they created many items that we can still see today. Their culture was wrapped around a religion based on gods and goddesses and they had the ability to live their lives in a desert, thanks to the River Nile.
The ancient Egyptians were very skilled as artists and the artifacts that they left behind covered many talents. They were excellent at painting, sculpting, working in metals, shaping gold, creating jewelry, building huge monuments and temples, as well as statues of their gods and goddesses and their pharaohs. The artifacts that have been found show what life was like in ancient Egypt, including living next to the River Nile. They went fishing, hunting, boating, transported goods for trade and fought in battles.
