"Dragons" Munch on Indonesian Fisherman

This story actually terrifies me. Lizards are weird and repulsive right? Well imagine a big one-- longer than you are tall--chasing you down and munching on you until you bleed to death. Oh, and it carries deadly venom [not bacteria]* in it's saliva...

So at the very least, you'll be hurting big time, for a long time to come....if you survive. That poor guy ended up bleeding to death when Komodo Dragons tried to make a meal of him.


/props to CNN.

*Updated on 5-20-09, per new findings that indicate komodo's use venom not bacteria in their saliva as previously thought.
