For the most part, I despise the concept of April Fools but this "prank" is one I could go along with.

Basically, rising temperatures are taking us back to medieval conditions, which were prime for dragons. They should be waking up from "the Great Sleep" any day now!
For the full bout of nonsense, you can read this article of "non-fiction" here:
Hamilton, May & Waters. (2015). Zoology: Here be dragons. Nature 520, 42-43
