In Chinese the character 辰(chen)has closed relationship with ‘dragon’ or ‘dinosaur’. Why?

The top part of the word looks a horizon 山 which means ‘mountain’. We always think dinosaur was the biggest animal in the world that going like huge mountain; The remaining part of 辰 is similar to that of 衣(yi):The latter seems as a clothing model on the stage who has wide shoulder with legs and arms stretching out! (The top dot is the head. 衣 means ‘clothing’.) So 辰 looks as an mountain-like creature walking on the ground with the top reminding you its huge main part of the body or the head!
