Travel bucket list idea:
Komodo National Park, Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia|
Komodo Island is famous for one reason – the monstrous 3m-long, 70kg Komodo dragons, the world’s largest living lizards.
With their long, deeply forked tongues and toxic bite, and a sprightly top running speed of 20km/h, these are dragons are every bit as menacing as the mythical beasts, capable of eating 80 percent of their body weight in one sitting.
The national park where they reside comprises 29 volcanic islands, with a unique menagerie of land and sea creatures besides the star attractions.
