the dragon....oriental by shadowlea

Characteristics of the Dragon and the number 9
In Chinese mythology, the dragon has a very close relationship with the number “9”. For example, the Chinese dragon actually has 9 characteristics that are a combination of other creatures.

1. He has a head like a camel
2. Scales like a fish

3. Horns like a deer
4. His eyes were like a stealth

5. Ears like an ox
6. Her neck like a snake

7. His stomach like oysters
8. Soles of his feet like a tiger

9. And paws like a hawk.
In addition to nine characteristics, the dragon in Chinese mythology is called has 9 children who also have different characteristics.
