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.
Just watching the unwanted guests flee in terror would compensate the downsides of not having visitors at all.
Just watch the Steve Irwin show on them if you ever get the chance. They`re worse than crocs. Crocs are /docile/ by comparison.
that episode will stay with me forever. THAT komodo was like friggin` godzilla.
Have you NOT seen the Wild Thornberries!?
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.
Nature sucks, but it`s just how she is.
& maybe it was just a younger one, which is why it`s small.
Also, how could u think komodo dragons are passive, they`re drating DRAGONS!
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
Three cheers for the food chain!
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 would be on the island of Komodo.
vv "i think that was a monitor lizard."
Komodo Dragons are monitor lizards.
