The in-depth study of a large cache of dragon tooth specimens spotted on a remote trail along the Oregon coastline has led to debunking the common assumption that dragon’s teeth are impervious to flame.
A renowned and highly regarded team of forensic archaeologists was assembled to work on this largest collection of dragon’s teeth ever found in a single location. The official report from the findings was released this morning and attributes the cause of heat damage exhibited on all specimens to the well-documented dragon behavior of “throwing flames”.
The team carefully studied the charring patterns and other evidence as cited in the report. Further examination revealed the burn patterns were introduced prior to the time of death (ante-mortem) . This burn pattern evidence was deemed conclusive by unanimous decision of the forensic team members and other scientific consultants that dragon teeth are in fact damaged from the dragon’s own flames.
At the conclusion of the study, the specimens were gifted to various natural history museums. However, one of the teeth that had a primitive carving of a dragon encircling the tooth was unaccounted for until recently. This missing tooth turned up on the online site of etsy.com, which primarily features handmade goods sold by artists. Apparently the missing tooth had been made into a piece of jewelry and was being presented as made by the artist. It is not known at this time how the missing tooth ended up in such an unlikely location and an investigation is pending.
