I recently read (could have been in National Geographic or else when some Hollywood type was bitten when in a zoo with one, that there are only a couple of places in the world that have the Komodo Dragon. I'm gonna' guess you mean Komodo Dragon and the one place I remember from the article is Komodo Island. There's somewhere else that the Komodo dragon is found but I forgot what it was.

I can't believe I'm right only because I've only won one of the dozens of Ray's challenges I've entered.

With my luck it'll be the other place I can't remember!

I do believe that you are right. Komodo Dragons only live in a few Indonesian islands.

I know that even if they don't kill you outright, their mouths are so full of horrendous bacteria that one can easily die from just the infection.

One would make a combination of a "unique" pet/home invasion protection method! "Here Komo, Komo, c'mon in and meet the ultimate in status symbol home protection and he's hungry!"

Exclamation Komodo

It is a two hour walk in the high heat and humidity to see the dragons in their natural environment. My DW Renée did it last month. The rangers carry sticks to fend the dragons off but no weapons.

It is on the Komodo Island Indonesia, located near Bali.

Here is another picture of this rugged Reptile. Skinney aren't they.

The one on the right looks as if he's sizing somebody up for lunch.
