Of lizards and slow moving animals...

Komodo Dragon

Big lizards are always fascinating. As long as they are not out in the open where they can chase me and maul me down. The Komodo Dragon is one scary lizard instead, it is fast, it is strong and you don't want to mess with him.

And even his saliva can kill you!

Two of a kind

And then, you have the lizards that still look like mini dinosaurs. They don't move much so it makes it easier to photograph them but it also means that you can get bored pretty quickly watching them.

Vege helps you live longer...

And then last, we have the slow moving turtles. These giant turtles can live for a very long, long time. Over a century old is common. Must be the vegetable diet. Maybe I should try it...

Up next: The end! Some inhabitants of the tree..
