Two hurt in Komodo dragon attack


2/8/2013

Two people have been taken to hospital after being attacked by a two-meter-long Komodo dragon. According to officials at Indonesia’s Komodo National Park, the giant lizard walked in to an office and attacked a park ranger, then turned on another employee who tried to rescue his colleague. Both men were described as being "badly bitten" and were airlifted to hospital in Bali. Komodo dragons are the world's biggest reptile and have razor sharp teeth and venom that can lead to paralysis. They usually feed on large mammals and have been known to attack humans in the past.
