Kandra and Dragons

Question

If a kandra were to somehow acquire the bones of an adult dragon, how much flesh would it have to eat in order to fill out it's skin and musculature and thus mimic a dragon effectively?

Well, TenSoon said he needed a large hog to acquire enough flesh to become a horse of appropriate size, albeit TenSoon was less massive than normal due to near-starvation and atrophy, but that's still an extreme amount of flesh to need to become a horse.

Now the issue with determining the same for a dragon is that we don't fully know what dragons are like in the cosmere, other than they have extreme lifespans. Presumably they are large, but that's still only a raw baseline. How large is large? We don't know. How dense is the draconic flesh? We don't know. Would the kandra be able to replicate the presumed wings of the dragon? We don't know.

It would have to be a lot of flesh, like a couple elephant's worth at a minimum, but there's nothing exact until we know what the deal actually is with the dragons.

And depending on their size, they might be using magic to break the square cube law. So even if they could manage to consume enough flesh to make the dragon shape, they'd have some major problems.
