Steven Spielberg’s high-grossing sci-fi movie “Jurassic Park” has given us the big picture of how dinosaurs used to dominate the earth. Have you ever thought of living with these ferocious creatures? Well, it might just be possible at Komodo National Park in Indonesia.

As you may have guessed, the national park is home to the Komodo dragon, a type of monitor lizard that is dinosaur-like and so huge – it’s the world’s largest lizard! As opposed to what you may have imagined, Komodo dragons don’t devour humans. For as long as you don’t scare them the way they have scared the hell out of you, they’ll just keep still and stare at you this way:

The national park was originally aimed at protecting the Komodo dragons but later it was dedicated to protecting other species of flora and fauna as well. The Komodo National Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 and won the recognition as one of the New7Wonders of Nature in 2011. Brave or not, travellers are most welcome to hike and enjoy the natural habitat of the Komodo dragons.
