What if the dinosaurs aren’t really extinct?
Standing on a deserted beach as a huge komodo dragon sprinted the full 500-meter stretch of sand, it’s a question that seems pretty relevant at the time.
It’s fanged jaws dripping with murderous poison and hyperseptic bacteria, this last remaining species of dinosaur had every intention of having one of our group for dinner.
We were on the remote edge of Komodo National Park, on an island where wild komodo dragons perch at the very top of the food chain.
The experience was both terrifying and amazing, with some of the komodo dragon photos turning out as the best from our 12-day trip on the Seven Seas.
I decided to put together this portfolio of my favorite komodo dragon photos from two trips to the park since 2011 – hope you enjoy this up-close-and-personal glimpse of planet earth’s last dinosaur as much as I enjoyed the adventures to see them in their native habitat.
All of these photos are also available as prints from my online print shop – click here now for pricing / sizing options.
