Children next to a "living fence" built to keep Komodo dragons out of Komodo Village, a Muslim fishing community 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. Several human fatailities have resulted from komodo dragon attacks in recent years.
