FYI: This Three-Headed Dragon Statue in Russia Breathes Real Fire

This picture of a massive three-headed dragon statue caught our eye, and we couldn’t help but wonder where it came from. Turns out, it’s part of a Russian theme park that is full of wondrous sculptures and activities.

Oh, and it breathes fire.

The dragon statue (sculpture might be more accurate, as it isn’t carved from stone, but seems to be made of wire mesh covered in some type of plaster) is situated in Kamenka of Zadonsk, in the district of Lipetsk, Russia. It’s part of a theme park–Safari Park Kudykin Mountain–that is full of wondrous sundry. Here’s a video of the going-ons:

There website can be found here–it’s in Russian, but it’s no trouble to click through regardless, and contains a handy map of the place along with pictures. It looks like there’s a village area with craftspeople, a petting zoo of sorts, and plenty of environments to interact with.

Oh, and not to belabor the point, but the dragon does breathe fire:
