Dragons And Other Legends Not Myths?

Below is an interesting link to a website discussing how Marco Polo seemed to refer to seeing a Dragon on his journey through Asia:

This thread is for the discussion of all other supposed legends, that may actually exist or have existed in the past.

It is typical how the editor tries to undermine Marco Polo in this instance. The Dinosaur Hoax was probably at least partly inspired by Dragons.

Exactly. Marco Polo knew what he saw, and knew full well what a Crocodile/Alligator was. What he saw was obviously not an Alligator, and what he describes is definitely what we would call a 'Dragon'.

The fascinating thing about dragons is that they are ubiquitous to nearly every culture and civilization. Dinosaurs on the other hand aren't. 
Another thing we can extrapolate from the various "myths" and "legends" is that their population was never that great; or perhaps they had a cyclical population growth and reduction. 
Either way, where could they possibly be? I doubt they are all extinct.
