    Re: mustache of a Dragon

    In BE it would be a moustache.

    (That's if the dragon actually had one; how would you find out?)

    I don't think a dragon can have one. Aren't they reptiles? - We need an expert on cryptozoology.

    Dragons are often described as 'fire-breathing'; what is visible under their nostrils is not facial hair, but smoke amd cinders!

    Re: mustache of a Dragon

    Out of curiosity, I checked out our Slavic creatures. They seem to have no moustache or beard or any other hint of facial - or muzzle? - hair . Then I saw a Chinese dragon - indeed, it is different from those that originate in western culture. Google says:

    ...most eastern dragons have horns and whiskers.

    I guess 'whiskers' is the word.

    And I hope somebody will ever need this information
