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.

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.
