The Komodo National Park is home to some of the world’s largest lizards – the Komodo dragons (Varanus komodoensis). These lizards are superlative in many ways – lengths of up to ten feet, up to 300 pounds in weight, and bad attitudes to match their deadly nature. Komodo dragons are, in fact, higher up on the food chain than you, and are not to be messed with. These lizards can run as fast as most dogs, climb trees, swim, and stand upright for brief periods. The park employs 70 rangers to stop poaching in the park; poachers can be sent to jail for up to ten years. They also safeguard the dragons, who have been electronically tagged for easier record-keeping. Finally, they safeguard the tourists, who are discouraged from touching the Komodo dragons. Good thing, too, as an intimate encounter with a Komodo dragon is not one you walk away from in one piece!. More about this tour click here
