How to say "Dragon" in Chinese:
The Chinese dragon has long been a symbol of power in Chinese folklore and art. The Chinese dragon also embodies the concept of yang (male) and is associated with the weather as the bringer of rain and water.
Unlike Western dragons, which are typically round, and walk on 4 legs, Chinese dragons are much longer, sleeker and snake-like.
For the Chinese people, dragons were described visually as a composite of parts from nine animals: The horns of a deer; the head of a camel; the eyes of a devil; the neck of a snake; the abdomen of a large cockle; the scales of a carp; the claws of an eagle; the paws of a tiger; and the ears of an ox.
