A video of what is believed to be the remnants of the legendary, fire-breathing creature, which shows the long spine, a pair of arms and legs, as well as a dragon-like skull, has gone viral after being viewed by over 10 million people.

According to the Daily Star Online, the hard structure was found in villages outside Zhangjakou City, in China, and encouraged locals to gather around the figure to judge for themselves what they thought the sighting was.

While many observers were convinced they were standing near the remains of a mythical creature, others believe it is a hoax.

Meanwhile, the local authorities are examining the corpse to find out what the remains belong to.
