Komodo, and Proud.

This started as an internal joke. We, that's me & my friend Syarin, always said that when hubby got upset his face would go all komodo-like. And hubby, and I love him for this, is the kind of guy who had no problem in laughing at himself and this 'komodo sensation' was no secret to him. We even called his previous car Kondra, short for Komodo Dragon. He once bought shoes from a store called Komodo and so proud of them (just because the brand was Komodo). So when we visited Bali Safari & Marine Park they got this komodo exhibit, he proudly took many pictures with his ancestors, the mighty Komodo Dragon. Maybe we'll visit the Komodo Island someday. :D

Komodo Dragon (Varanus komodoensis) is the biggest lizard on earth and exists only on Komodo Island National Park, Nusa Tenggara Timur (East Nusa Tenggara). This animal is Indonesian Endemic animal and also the icon of the country. The Komodo's saliva has ten kinds of deadly bacteria used to kill its preys. Komodo can detect the smell of dead animal up to 9 km away.
