Giant Komodo Dragons in Indonesia.

Indonesia's "Jurassic Park" with Komodo dragon.

Spectacular Komodo dragons are great stuff for tourism-oriented travelers but maybe an eyesore for environmentalists.

The landscaping architects assigned to this exotic Indonesian"Jurassic Park " project proudly call it like that the Komodo Archipelago is just right north of "down under" in the Indian Ocean another amazing island group of Indonesia. Komodo dragons are neither as big nor as old as the dinosaurs from the Hollywood blockbuster but research showed they have been populating the planet for over four million years and to make it clear if tourists don't play mad no Komodo dragon ever bite them. Pls. note the pictures here are of life animals and not a computer simulation.

The monitor lizards usually are of a smaller version in most ASEAN countries (Southeast Asia) on the Komodo Islands they grow up to three meters long they only live on a handful of islands in Indonesia today actually they appear like remnants from prehistoric times - and that is exactly what makes Komodo dragons in this spectacular exotic Indonesian"Jurassic Park so fascinating.

Some of the last giant lizards are integrated into a new tourist attraction on Rinca Island in the world-famous Komodo National Park. Animal rights activists fear that the natural habitat of the reptiles could vanish and be abandoned to profit interests although Indonesia already has almost one billion inhabitants mostly Islam dedicated plus a couple of thousand Hindu followers on the island of Bali.

Booming Indonesian tourism.

The 1.3 hectare Komodo Dragon Jurrasic park project which is said to cost 6.7 million dollars is part of the efforts of President Joko Widodo's government to boost tourism in the world's largest island nation (second largest are the Philippines). In addition to the popular holiday island of Bali with plenty of Hindu Temples other tourist hotspots also attract visitors to Indonesia. Critics would prefer to leave the Komodo Archipelago alone.

Endangered giant lizards.

The lizards are rushing around everywhere in tropical Southeast Asia The Komodo National Park, which is made up of the islands of Rinca Komodo and Padar, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. According to the latest figures from the authorities fewer than 3,000 giant lizards live there today.

Regardless of this, the government in Jakarta has decided to give the protected area - as well as the place Labuan Bajo on the island of Flores, from which traditionally the boat tours to the monitor lizards start - priority in tourism development.
