Spread across a few small islands of the Indonesia archipelago is a strange, prehistoric, species of giant lizard. These large dominant predators are captivating because of their size and their aggressiveness. In spite of this infamous reputation, the Komodo dragon is a vulnerable species, threatened by its limited range and eroding habitat.

Clearly, inching in for a close-up photo is not a safe proposition. To capture the amazing Komodo dragon photos shown here, Will Burrard-Lucas created the "KomodoCam".
