    We obviously have a very good topic here...

    This is almost like comparing Hulk Hogan to Brock Lesnar if anyone knows anything about wrestling. Well Brock Lesnar has had more and better equipment and state of the art training at his fingertips and is the greatest wrestler in the buisness. He is the ultimate wrestler. Hogan however is an older and more expierienced wrestler. A true veteran who has lots of accomplishments under his belt, while Lesnar has few.

    Ancalagon has gone under alot of new expireaments and has been perfected, while Glaurung has so many more accomplishments and is a great Dragon, though he would be outskilled by Ancalagon in a duel.

    It's hard to put it into words, but Glaurung is just so accomplished as a Dragon, while Ancalagon really never had a chance to prove anything

    Why are there so many people saying Glaurung was bigger? His entire body was hardly larger than a deer's leap (he had to jump to get over Cabed-en-Aras). He was obviously Morgoths first attempt at creating a dragon, so he wouldn't be perfect because he's basically a prototype.
    Now Ancalagon on the other hand was the product of Morgoth experimenting and breeding better dragons, and Ancalagon was the absolute best Morgoth could create. He was large enough to crumble Thangorodrim, which was at that time the highest peak in middle earth. Ancalagon would have been at least 15x Glaurungs size, possibly more than 20x.
    Glaurung was the first, but definitely not the greatest. That title goes to Ancalagon.
