Dragons still exist on the Earth! The last of them inhabits the territory of the Komodo National Park in Indonesia.
How to watch Komodo Dragon on Komodo
When planning a trip to Indonesia, do not miss the chance to watch the largest lizard on the planet - Komodo lizard. The large amphibian grows up to three meters in length, and can weigh up to 100 kilo. That is the reason to call it the Komodo Dragon.

Komodo Dragons perfectly hunt both on land and in the water, but quickly get tired. Not catching a victim within 20 minutes, they go dozing hungry in the shade. Small animals and rodents are killed with a sharp wave of their tail, and large cloven-hoofed animals are taken by cunning - dragon creeps up from behind, infects a victim with their bite and wait patiently until it dies of poison.

From December to January, the Komodo Dragon begins the mating season, when the males are fighting among themselves for the right to give offspring. This is the most right time of year that you will be able to see the dragons the most active.

Watch the biggest lizard close by — fortunately they do not eat people, except the drought times of the year. But in the reserve, it is kept the safety technique - the workers watch the Komodo lizards eat on time.
