"Here were dragons" ... your great-great-great-great-great-great-etc-granny's footprints on Valentia ls.

I was on Valentia Island at the weekend & went to see among the most ancient preserved footprints in the world - just outside Knightstown.
Although they don't boast the massive slab-like impressions of a giant (a creature about the size of a cat made them), they are ancient.
Those footprints are from your last fish-like ancestor - a tetrapod.
It went on to develop into you, me & pretty much every other land-based animal, including 'Jordan'.
