    Default Komodo Dragon Gets Its Ass Kicked by 83 Year Old Woman

    Badass 83-year-old Indonesian woman fights a Komodo dragon

    3 hrs agoHaisah (who, like many Indonesians, and also Cher, goes by one name) was outside her home on Indonesia's Rinca Island when a six-and-a-half-foot Komodo dragon paid her a visit. The huge creature lunged at the 83-year-old and sank its teeth into her wrist. "There was nobody else around and I knew that I faced a fight for survival," she said. "I kicked the Komodo on one of its front legs with all my strength, it was only one kick but it made the Komodo let go of my hand, then I screamed for help." She needed 35 stitches, but is doing fine now. The Komodo later died of shame. (We’re guessing.) [Source]

    *shudders* I hate these vile creatures. Ewwww. I think of that episode of Fatal Attractions on Animal Planet about the idiot who had pet Komodo dragons in his apartment (Yes. His apartment.) They bit him and when he collasped they ate his face.

    Yep. It's venomous but it's "slow acting". The victim just slowly gets weaker and weaker and when they collapse, these demonic lizards attack. *shudders*

    Komodo Dragon: The world's largest lizard


    San Francisco Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein - the husband of actress Sharon Stone - has had foot surgery following an attack by a Komodo dragon at a US zoo.
    Bronstein was bitten on the foot in the Indonesian lizard's cage during the couple's private tour of Los Angeles zoo.


    Bronstein and Stone do not blame zoo staff


    He had surgery on Saturday to reattach severed tendons and rebuild a big toe and was in a stable condition, a spokesman for the paper said.
    The lizard got hold of Bronstein's foot after a zookeeper asked him to remove his white tennis shoes to keep the five-foot-long reptile from mistaking them for the white rats it is fed.
    Stone, who witnessed the attack from outside the cage, said the reptile attacked Bronstein's shoeless foot, crushing his big toe while thrashing its body around.
    The editor managed to pry open the reptile's mouth and escape through a small feeding door in the cage while the zookeeper distracted it, Stone said.

    Komodo Dragon
    World's largest lizard
    Measures up to 3.1m
    Weighs up to 126kg
    Numbers estimated at 1,000 to 5,000
    Found on Komodo, Rintja, Padar, and Flores islands
    Nicknamed 'buaya
    darat' or land crocodile
    Bronstein is expected to leave the hospital in Los Angeles on Monday, and he told the newspaper: "I'm recovering, and I expect to be back at work this week."
    The tour was arranged as a Father's Day surprise for Bronstein, who had always wanted to see a Komodo dragon up close."We're very grateful for the professional care of the people at the hospital," added the US actress. "We certainly don't blame the people at the zoo."
