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.
