Komodo dragons. They’re crazy fast and insanely dedicated to watching prey suffer a slow, terrible death. It turns out their venom also makes it impossible for a person’s blood to clot if they’re ever bitten.
Once bitten, their venom basically makes anything unfortunate enough to have it coursing through their veins bleed out. Sounds awful — so why is this guy petting the dragon like a dog?
Fortunately, there is a bright side to the effects of their venom. It could potentially be sued to lead to new medicines that could help with any number of currently incurable diseases.
Here’s to hoping their dangerous bite is really here to help us in some way!
