    Two Komodo Dragons Kill Indonesian Man

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,510239,00.html

    The man's neighbor, Theresia Tawa, said he was bleeding badly from bites to his hands, body, legs and neck by two lizards Monday and died at a clinic on the neighboring island of Flores.
    How awful! I didn't know they were aggressive!
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I had never heard that! I guess I need to read up on Komodo Dragons.

    A 10 foot carniverous reptile should be considered aggressive....

    If I was in that tree with these big lizzards crawling around under me I would make sure i did NOT fall out... Those suckers can run fast too. I wonder how he was going to get out of the tree anyway?

    Their saliva is also poisonous to humans. Not really a poison, but a stew of bacteria that no antibiotics work on. So even if you were to survive the actual bite, you could very well die from the infection.
