"The fisherman was inside the park when he went looking for sugar-apples. The area was forbidden for people to enter as there are a lot of wild dragons."
Yesterday a story broke on CNN about a dude who was attacked by Komodo dragons. The quote above is from the article. First things first, my heart goes out the victim's family, that is a tough way to go. But, anyway, Komodo dragons, are you kidding? How long have people been sleeping on this totally badass beast?
I knew about them when I was kid, but it was more like, yeah, they're big Iguanas, not ferocious predators from Jack Hannah's nightmares. Check out their abilities.

When I read that, I think a couple of things. The first, obviously the Dragon is the real King of the animal word, forget Lions. I've seen Lions in zoos, have I seen Komodo Dragons? No, because any attempt to capture them, the zoologists got destroyed. The second, how much would it suck to meet one of these in the wild? And finally, WHERE IS THE KOMODO DRAGON MOVIE? I've seen "Anaconda", wait let me rephrase that, I greatly enjoyed Anaconda. I've sat through "Deep Blue Sea" (It wasn't as good as Anaconda). And I never saw "Bats." I'm waiting for the KOMODO DRAGON movie, and no "The Curse of the Komodo" does not count. I want Ice Cube and Cole Hauser suiting up with some hardware and facing off against the beast.
