Komodo dragon taking a sunbath by AudeS Komodo dragon taking a sunbath by AudeS
This was taken at the Smithonian Zoo in Washington D.C.
I really liked to take some good photos. Unfortunatly the sun glare made most photos difficult... except for this one. I really like how this komodo dragon is standing in the sunlight, like it's a natural spot light. Of course, komodo dragons are lizards and lizards need the heat of sunlight to survive.

The greatest lizard in the world... and truly powerful. A kmodo dragon has it's name for a good reason.

You should've seen its extinct cousin, Megalania. It was over 20 feet long and roamed Australia only a few thousand years ago, about the time Australian Aborigines arrived on the island.

Well, it seems someone has been digging around. Yep, that is indeed an even more impressive species of Varanus. Or rather it was.

There are rumors that Megalania could actually still be alive. Suriviving deep within the unexplored parts of Australian Rainforest.

Here's a sketch I made of it. :)

Hmm, I see. It is indeed possible for some species to survive after they are declared extinct. It happened a few times, so I guess it can happen again. If research resources would be put into that.
And the sketch is quite decent.

Yeah, a perfect example is the Coelacanth. We thought they went extinct when the dinosaurs did. And then, suddenly one shows up caught off the coast of Africa in 1938. So who knows what other extinct creature might possibly still be alive and kicking somewhere in the world?


And thanks for the compliment. :D I've actually drawn many more creatures besides that one. Feel free to check them out! ^_^

Awesome, and no doubt. They are just truly amazing and I've drawn a lot of inspiration from them.
