Man-Eating Dragon?

Man-Eating Dragon?

It is 1974 and Baron Rudolf von Redding [Deberoff] of Switzerland has traveled nearly halfway around the world to go bird-watching on Komodo. Steep hills make the hiking rigorous. Rudolf has trouble keeping up with the others as the heat soars. He decides to rest in the shade of a tree near the path telling the group to continue without him. They do so, promising to return shortly. Just two hours later they return but there’s no sign of the baron.

The search the island extensively for two days but never find him. The only traces that remain are a few of his personal artifacts. Though no one can say for sure what happened to the baron, many believe that he was eaten by dragons. Komodo dragons are notorious scavengers. They often congregate at the site of dead bodies and will eat nearly everything; bones, hooves, horns, even skulls. The lizards can consume up to 80% of their body weight in a matter of minutes. Except for large snakes, no other meat eater wastes so little of the animal it’s eating. Even vultures leave a skeleton behind. If the fatigued baron had died of heat exhaustion or some other ailment, it’s possible the lizards could have eaten his remains before the group returned. They’ve been known to forage on human corpses before.
