Too lazy to log on and take pics, so here's directions: If you go as far South as at all possible with out dying to fatigue in Vashjir, far far out in Deep sea you can see a giant Pearl, seeming not that big cause of the distance. it is surrounded by bones on simply mind blowing scales. Which makes at least 2 sets of skeletons bigger than Galakrond, the creature "so big the only comparable thing was himself". yea right :P

    I've been to those skeletons a few years back and have a few old screenies.

    They're honestly not THAT large. The pearl is maybe 2 night elves tall. Plus they dont have legs, they're just whales or something.

    After going there and looking at it, it seems to me it was either a dev having fun with the ground making tools as you see no actual bones what soever on the whole thing, or it was intened to be Galakrond as it does have a dragon like snout and horns, and has at least one hind leg.

    well I've never noticed this until you pointed it out, so it was out the way enough to be an easter egg.

    for reference, this is how big Galakrond was with the aspects (still proto drakes then) around him.

    Whoa, actually, if you look at it...it looks about as big as Deathwing does during the DragonSoul raid...(Who looks much bigger than other appearences)

    Random thought...we blow him up at the Maelstrom...I wonder if the Dragonsoul was strong enough to kill him, teleport him back in time and at that area, and let him die there.

    The only thing we had left is his metal chin.

    Which, this skeleton doesn't have a lower jaw...



    DUN DUN DUNNNNN!

    I doubt Blizzard will ever address this, but it is definetly a good question to ask them in the next dev interview roundup for the art team.

    I always thought Galakrond's bones weren't big enough.

    It's probably just a random terrain detail.

    P.S. Love the use of "gnome" as a unit of measure.

    Probably will never see who that beast is but in my hopes I do hope we find out and that we can see some sort of a flashback to when it was alive.

    Strictly speaking, that is really how fossilized bones end up... just as part of the rock.

    In any case, I think it's safe to say that that's not a dragon, it's a sea monster.

    That's because it's so ancient, it became a fossil!

    No, seriously...

    My guess is that the reason Blizzard has never mentioned this thing or it being larger than Galakrond is that it was not part of their zone design. Since it is just made out of terrain, I'd guess that whoever was in charge of designing that area decided to have a little fun with the geography and textures to spice it up a bit.
