    I've alrways heard they were dangerous. Remember when Sharon Stone's husband was attacked by one at a zoo?

    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.
