Lindworm!


Lindworms are flightless dragons which have further lost their hind limbs. At left is Lindwyrmus nychognathus, a large arboreal lindworm from Argentina. We'll be covering it soon, after we finish the wyverns and a recently-discovered dragon (a new member of the Dracolympidae). The last third of the dragons/wyverns series will be problematic taxa, which Lindwyrmus most certainly is.
