Komodo "ruler on the island of Komodo"

Reptilia mania - Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis)
Reptilia mania - Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis), is the world's largest lizard species that live on the island of Komodo, Indonesia. Results of research Bryan Fry from Melbourne University in Australia broke the allegation that the Komodo has a number of bacteria that is very much in his mouth, causing infection of the prey.
Bryan rationale to conduct further research will myth 'bacteria in the mouth of the Komodo' originated from observations of Komodo lifestyle. If there are dragons in the mouth of many bacteria that can cause infection of the prey, the prey of Komodo will die within 2 to 3 days before he died because of infection, but in reality these giant reptiles prey die in a short time after being bitten.
