The Lambton Worm
This is a whole new can of worms...
There's life...and then there's the afterlife.
We visited the cousin of my wife in Naters, Switzerland, nestled at the bottom of the mountains below the Aletsch Glacier next to the Rhone River and across from the Simplon Pass into Italy. There is an old church a block from her house, Saint Mauritius. On the side was an old iron image of a dragon that was there to celebrate an old story that a dragon once lived in the mountains behind Naters. One day a locksmith was convicted of killing his wife, but as punishment he volunteered to try to kill the dragon. He used his skill as a locksmith to make a sword that was uncommonly hard and sharp and was able to kill the dragon and save himself from being hung for murder.

Where do dragon stories come from? No idea. Maybe it was warm enough in Europe for a time that crocodiles could survive there, or huge snakes like the anaconda. Or maybe not.

Subject: I have a black cat.
Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.

I love the battle strategy of the man's 5-year-old son: "I'd kick it in the eyeball...and then run away when it can't see me". Bluecy

My theory is that the original monstrous worm was an oversized eel that grew to dragonish proportions with each retelling, accompanied by liberal amounts of ale. I've seen huge eels in a local dam in Sydney and they are certainly still present in the English, and Scottish waterways. One of my favourite extreme fishing programs, "River Monsters", features the experiences of a British biologist and angler, Jeremy Wade.

What no mention in this link of the Mongolian Worm?
Oh wow. Never heard of the Mongolian Death Worm. My education has been neglected. The description reminds me of the giant spice worms from the "Dune" series by Frank Herbert. Cool.
