Mr. Nature: Komodo Dragon Chases Deer

Jambo! Mr. Nature here; and today’s safari takes us to Komodo Island to meet the Komodo Dragon, the world’s largest living lizard.

I can’t praise this lizard’s deer-hunting technique. Does he think he’s a Jersey fence lizard chasing down a cricket? What kind of chuckle-head thinks he’s ever going to run down a deer? Look at this video: the deer see the dragon coming from a hundred yards away. True, this particular lizard is quite fast: he’d’ve caught me. But he needs to work on his ambush technique, or he’ll never have a deer for supper unless he sends out invitations.
