This is an rfv-sense for the definition: "Any of the 5 basic groups of giant reptiles."

Perhaps I'm missing something, but what are the five basic groups of giant reptiles? I'd say it's rubbish, but since there are definitely distinct mythological creatures from various cultures that have been labeled "dragon" over the years, I'm not positive.

Additionally, the remaining definitions could probably use some cleanup; if we don't resolve it via the RFV, it can go to RFC for the rest. --Jeffqyzt 17:06, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

I took it to be literal and real when on patrol. There are a number of reptiles called dragons besides the Komodo. Looking into it some though there doesn't seem to be any systematic naming. It could use some touch-up regardless. DAVilla 18:04, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
I have removed the disputed sense. In that sense, a dragon is a lizard.
