A Komodo Dragon's tongue flickers and septic saliva drips from its mouth as it prowls the beach in remote Komodo National Park in Indonesia. The park draws adventurous travelers hoping to see the carnivorous Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis), the world's largest monitor lizard, in the wild. Several human fatailities have resulted from komodo dragon attacks in recent years.
