Entrance to Komodo National
Park. We take the short walk with our guide Irwan who is on work
assignment from school. His English was good and he was helpful and

actually smell with their tongues so here we see one sniffing.
One is sure to
find a few dragons under the kitchen area and they appear nice and
somnolent here but one gets disturbed and decides to take a walk so stand
animals we met on our walk were a fruit bat and a water buffalo. The
buffalos can provide a good meal for the dragons. If they get bitten by a
dragon they slowly succumb to the bacteria in the dragon's saliva and die.
Then the dragons have a feast. This all seems very sad as the buffalos are
quite appealing and the dragons not at all.
