    I still think one of the most chilling things I have ever seen on a David Attenbrough wildlife programme was when a Komodo dragon attacked and bit a cow and just followed it around for days waiting for an infection to set in and kill it.

    Their was a “making of” bit at the end and the cameramen admitted that it was one of the hardest things they ever had to film

    Unknown to humans until 100 years ago? Unknown to western civilisation surely!

      No. Every human that ever saw a Komodo dragon before 1913 was chased down, bitten, and followed unto infectious death. Komerta.

    I find that any article on this species gets more fun if you simply omit the word “komodo”

    I like to imagine that the public got their first awesome glimpse of these baby komodo dragons as they perched peacefully on the naked, ash-covered body of a lithe blonde zookeeper.

    They’re known to attack their victims through soft tissue or orifices (testicles, throat, anus) and eat their way through.  Not so adorable now, are they?
