Just how big is Ancalagon the Black? Can't Post

If he was able to smash the three volcanoes of Thangorodrim upon his death, I can't fathom the size he would have to be......Imagine the number of Big Macs that would be needed to feed him..........

Volcanos don't have to be large. [In reply to] Can't Post

There are a lot of little vents (called "pu‘u" in Hawai‘i) on the slopes of a volcano. Some grow big, others don't. A good-sized dragon could likely smash several of those. It would be fun to watch!
