This is cool. You really have to wonder WHY does every culture seem to have myths of the Dragons?

Considering that herbivore dinosaurs did eat rock to help grind the grass in their gut. I don't see how they would be unable to get that platinum element.
As for flamable gases produced by bacteria... a form of methane gas is produced by the bacteria in our large intestine.

Besides... snakes and scorpions have venom, monitor lizards or "Komodo Dragons" have bacteria laced saliva... yet the "weapons" these animals have doesn't affect them, because its their nature to develope a tolerance or even resistance to their own deadly weapon.
