Komodo dragons are sly, brutal animals when they need to be. While they may not breathe fire, that doesn’t mean they’re any less intimidating when running down prey.
This unsuspecting deer is a prime example of just how fast they can switch from moving sluggishly to a full sprint. It’s not apparent if the deer was bitten (it came awfully close if not) but it might want to stand up a little faster the next time something chases it.
If it was bitten then it’s in for a brutal and drawn out next few days.
Bitten or not, one thing is for sure — those people were about a mile closer to it than we would ever get without a cage between us!
