    i think that was a monitor lizard. komodo dragons are normally standing up more than what was shown in the video.

    vv "Where is there a deer and a komodo dragon in the same place?"

    That would be on the island of Komodo.

    vv "i think that was a monitor lizard."

    Komodo Dragons are monitor lizards.

    I have been to gran canaria and seen them live in captivity, they are usually much bigger than that, even in the wild but it was a komodo.

    Also dont feel bad for the deer, it cannot actually feel anything as it has stopped running that must mean that the toxins have set in.

    That looked like it was staged. If it wasn`t, I would have like to see the take down.

    Oooooooooooooooooh DEER!!

    At first I misinterpreted the word "deer" for "squirrel"

    I started watching the video and was like "Whoa! Wtf? That`s either a huge squirrel or a small dragon... or is the squirrel hiding in the pouch... thing..."

    And that`s when realization hit

    Ya thought they were passive?? Passive? Yes...they are 8 foot carniverous lizards, have poisonous saliva, and have the word dragon in the name....yeah, they`re about as passive as that.

    That thing is a beast! It`s so cool!

    & maybe it was just a younger one, which is why it`s small.

    Neagle, ur a dope, of course its not staged, nature`s just just a bitch.
    Also, for all you people feeling bad for th edeal, scientists like to think that the burst of adrenaline prey animals get when they`re attacked prevents them from feeling too much pain. . . As they`re eaten a live. . .

    The komodo`s toxins paralyze the deer so really it can`t feel a thing and all it can really do is grunt.

    Nature sucks, but it`s just how she is.

    Red5TheFinn-

    Komodo Dragons have mouths so full of bacteria and disease that their prey quickly succumbs to fatal infection. Infections that hurt like hell. They have no toxins, and aren`t poisonous by any stretch of the imagination.

    Komodo dragons are actually very violent and prone to aggression.

    Just watch the Steve Irwin show on them if you ever get the chance. They`re worse than crocs. Crocs are /docile/ by comparison.

    F*ck, those things are awesome.
    I want one for my frontyard. No more goddamn Jehova`s Witnesses, no more kids trying to go trick-or-treating (in Germany?! What the hell? We don`t celebrate that! Get off my porch!), no need to just rely on hearing a burglar...

    Just watching the unwanted guests flee in terror would compensate the downsides of not having visitors at all.

    Lemurs366:

    Generally, a Komodo will bite its prey, and then wait for it to succumb to the infection, which can take over a day. The adrenaline from the initial attack would have long worn off, and I`m sure by the time it`s laying on the ground half dead from being so septic, it doesn`t get a burst of adrenaline while being eaten. Nonetheless, for those of you who feel bad for the mammal, what about the komodo? They`re all animals, it`s just the luck of the draw. One dies to let the other live.
