We took a boat one day to see the Komodo Dragons on Rinca Island with some of the people we met on the dive boat.

The dragons were very big, slow, and drooly. They were impressive, yet mostly immobile. Most were hanging out by the ranger station, waiting for a handout.


We also walked around the island a bit, searching for more dragons, but mostly to no avail. We did find a baby dragon in a tree though; it looked a lot like a run-of-the-mill lizard. The sun was really strong that day, and we walked through savanna and forest on Rinca.
