 Komodo Island(Lot of Pic)

i’ve seen there’s a lot of thread about komodo dragon that not serious,
so ill post my 3days trip to Komodo Island last Holliday.

a little introduction about Komodo Island from wiki:
Komodo is one of the 17,508 islands that make up the Republic of Indonesia. The island has a surface area of 390 km² and over 2000 inhabitants. The inhabitants of the island are descendants of former convicts who were exiled to the island and who have mixed themselves with the Bugis from Sulawesi. The population are primarily adherents of Islam but there are also Christian and Hindu minorities.

Maybe everyone has already understand Komodo dragon because they not so different from the other monitor lizard in behaviour, so ill just post the photo.

Question& critics are welcome

Enterance to Rinca Island(Komodo)




Crowds of Komodo on Ranger station


They are over something



The victim before


After


(The Komodo dragon eats almost everything except the skull, the backbone,and hip bone)

They are very lazy on sunny days(maybe everyday )




Meet our brave Ranger


They finally up moving after getting a little interference




A brave youngster(because his live will end if he meet the large one)



This is a fascinating trip because this is the first time i saw the monitors on their natural habitat.
Question& critics are welcome

Rinca island from wiki:

Rincah, also known as Rinca and Rindja, is a small island near Komodo island, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The island is famous for komodo dragons, giant lizards that can measure up to three meters (ten feet) long. Rincah is also populated with many other species such as wild pigs, buffalos and many birds.
Being less known and less visited than Komodo it is an excellent place to see the Komodo Dragon in its natural environment with fewer people to disturb them. Day trips can be arranged from Labuanbajo on Flores by small boat at the park headquarters.
The island’s area is 198 km2.[1]
