Komodo Dragon Attacks

Komodo Dragon Attacks Indonesia Park Ranger:
A park ranger in Indonesia needed more than 30 stitches after he was attacked by a komodo dragon.

"The giant reptile managed to climb into a hut where 46-year-old Main was sitting at his desk.

The attack happened on Rinca, one of three islands where the world's largest lizard can be found in the wild.

Main, who like many Indonesians uses only one name, wrestled with the komodo dragon until it let go.

He fled out a window as colleagues rushed to his aid, using wooden sticks to drive the lizard out of the hut."
