Residents from Zhangjiakou City, in China’s northern Hebei Province, stumbled across the mysterious bones and filmed their discovery.
It has not yet been confirmed what the remains are, but the discovery has sparked interest on social media.
The skeleton includes a large skull and two tiny arms – extending across a stretch of grass.
Unlike dragons depicted in Western mythology, traditional Chinese dragons have no wings and fly by “swimming” through the air.
Dragons have been in the spotlight recently after the screening of the last series of fantasy epic Game Of Thrones.
In the final episode a zombie dragon blasted the show’s famous wall with what looked like blue fire.
