Dragons can be friendly or fierce (凶狠), they can bring good luck or cause death, but one thing is sure—people talk about them almost everywhere in the world. For a creature that doesn’t actually exist, that’s quite something.

In Chinese culture, dragons are generous and wise, although they can be unpredictable. The dragon was closely connected to the royal family: theemperor’s robes (礼袍)have a symbol of a gold dragon with five claws. Other members of the royal family were allowed to wear dragon symbols, too, but with fewer claws and of a different colour. According to popular belief, if you were born in the year of the dragon, you are intelligent, brave, and a natural leader.

But in the west, dragons had a different reputation (名声). The very first text in English, the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf, tells the story of a Scandinavian hero, Beowulf, who fights and kills a dangerous dragon but is himself killed in the fight. However, across the border in Wales, the red dragon which appears on the Welsh flag is a positive symbol, indicating strength and a sense of national identity.(http://zk.nmet168.com)

Why should the dragon have a different character in different parts of the world? Some experts believe it is due to the animals that the myths grew out of. In the west, the idea of the dragon probably came from the snake—an animal which people hated and ____ ____of(害怕).

But in China, the idea of the dragon may have come from the alligator—a shy animal which lives in rivers, but which is usually only seen when there is plenty of water—a good sign for agriculture(农业). So the Chinese dragon was a bringer of good fortune.
