The majority of dragons in current North American and ancient Mesoamerican legends are serpentine in appearance. The ‘Horned Snake,’ a common dragon in the United States and Canada, is a good monster who is said to come to the rescue of young women. The Aztec and Mayan cultures revere Mesoamerican dragons as major gods. The Feathered Serpent, also known as Quetzalcoatl or Kukulkan, is the most famous of them all. The benign dragon is credited with the creation of the Earth and all life on it. Like the Chinese and many other Asian dragons, it was thought to devour evil people and to be able to control the weather and the rain.
