My favorite animal. It is a known fact by my friends and family that I have always loved Komodo Dragons. Every so often I hop on eBay and try to buy any unusual Komodo Dragon things I can find. I have things from coins, stamps, wooden sculptures, pens, and more on my shelf of collectibles along side my vintage camera collection. If you own a Playstation 3 and play online you may see me around as ‘Komodo Vs You’. Sounds evil right? I mean, who would want to get in a fight with a Komodo Dragon? Not me!
Why I love Komodo Dragons (I really don’t know 100% why I love them but I do)
- The largest lizard
- The oldest living lizard
- Not venomous but has so much bacteria that one small scratch will kill
- Can climb
- Love to be pet
