Komodo Dragon Attacks European Divers

Komodo DragonFive divers in Indonesia got carried away and ended up staying a couple of nights at Mantaolan, on the island of Rinca off the Komodo National Park. The group went missing last Thursday and were found Saturday. During their brief stay at the home of the Large Komodo Dragon, Rinca island, they were apparently “checked out” by one of the local inhabitants. Which makes sense but never the less must have been a little nerve racking.

Frenchman Laurent Pinel, 31, said the group had to fight off one dragon with rocks and scavenged for shellfish as they waited to be rescued, Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper reported.
“On the beach a Komodo dragon came amongst us [Friday] afternoon,” Pinel said, describing how the group had to pelt the dangerous reptile with rocks to scare it away.
“We had nothing to eat. We ate some kind of mussels scraped from the rocks,” Pinel told the newspaper.

Here’s hoping the Komodo Dragon is okay..
