There be dragons!

We paid a short visit to the national park on Komodo Island to see th famous residents. No, not the 1000 humans who live on the island. We were looking for one of the 1300 plus Komodo monitors, or Komodo dragons, that live there. 

We spent a couple of hours walking through the jungle with a guide and a park ranger. As jungles go it was relatively dry and fairly open. But we still were very alert, since the dragons blend in well and move fast. 


And there one was, basking on the rocks. 


Further along, at a water hole, we found a group.


We're looking at them, they're mostly ignoring us. 


Everyone paid attention when this guy stood up and looked back!
