I received

the following

question

in June 2021:

“How big

were  Dragons

like  Smaug,

Ancalagon,

Glaurung

and  Scatha

in  Tolkien’s books?”

Ancalagon was large enough

to destroy mountain peaks

in his fall from the sky.

So I’m guessing he was pretty big.

To the best of my knowledge,

the only dragon for whom Tolkien

provided any kind of approximate

reference in size was Glaurung.
