Don't you hate it when facts change. I was always fascinated by Komodo dragons when I was growing up. A 200 pound 10 foot long lizard that could eat a deer sounded cool to me, like a dinosaur. When learning more about them with my kids all the documentaries said that the Komodo was not poisonous, but had toxic bacteria in its mouth that could kill you. Now they are saying it is poisonous. I just hope the world is still round.
I love the idea of the arguments among the bitten. "I'm going through toxic shock!" "Oh yeah? I was poisoned!"
If you haven't already read the late Douglas Adams' 'Last Chance To See'. A true story of a humorist trying to teach us that animal extinction is current and hurts us all.
Never heard of that book. I added it to my list of books to read.
What is this reading that you all speak of?
Ah, bibliophiles. The next endangered species.
