The boy “shouldn’t have crouched like a prey species in a place where dragons live,” says Marcus Matthews-Sawyer, tourism, marketing and communications director at Putri Naga Komodo. “You’ve got to be very careful about extrapolating and drawing any conclusions.”

Wait, isn’t that what you just did?
Liberals.

Oh they will probably declare the lizards an endangered animal, declare their area a wilderness zone, and move all the people out to public housing.

This is just stupid on its surface.

For a Komodo or a salt water Croc there are only prey species. Anything they can clamp their jaws on is prey.

Anyone reading the article can easily discern that the Komodo is an ambush killer. It waits in cover until an animal or human comes with in striking range. The reptilian brain does not distinguish between man and animal.

What a reptilian will learn however is another carnivore which it can follow around and wait for an easy meal of leftovers.

This is exactly what the Komodo used to know when the villagers left deer offal for the dragons.
