Komodo – Secrets of the Dragon
It’s fair to say the Komodo dragon isn’t nature’s prettiest design, but this enormous lizard is fascinating to watch. The Komodo dragon was discovered one hundred years ago, yet the true nature of the biggest lizard in the world is only just being uncovered.
Australian biologist Dr Bryan Fry has become infatuated with the Indonesian inhabitants and travels to Komodo to understand more about the predators. He doesn’t get too close – the apparently sleepy dragons can turn at a moment’s notice, as a water buffalo discovers to its eternal cost. But Dr Fry’s affection for these unique creatures is certainly infectious – especially with a TV screen between them and us.
Dr Bryan Fry uses hi-tech tools to take a fresh look at Komodo dragons, discovering that there is a lot more to the dragon than meets the eye, from its hidden venom glands to its secret origins. He finds that although this prehistoric beast was discovered one hundred years ago, the true nature of the biggest lizard in the world is only just being uncovered.
