Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Currently reading

A Song for Arbonne
Guy Gavriel Kay
A Game of Thrones
George R.R. Martin

Reading progress update: I've read 81 out of 304 pages.

Furry Logic: The Physics of Animal Life - Liz Kalaugher, Matin Durrani

 

Anyone else wishing they could plan a trip to Komodo Island to see the dragons?

 

Our zoo in Calgary had Komodo Dragons for a while, but it's just not the same as seeing them in the wild.

 

I also have been given to understand that in captivity, they don't produce such toxic bites as the wild lizards.  However, the risks of catching Salmonella from them is high.

 

I just checked the Canadian government website, and non-essential travel to Indonesia (which includes Komodo Island) is not advised.  No Komodos in my future, at least for now.
