Komodo Dragon – Antagonism
Size matters, the completion and finishing of projects, taking nourishment from the dead, communing with the dead, fierceness, confidence and arrogance, poisoning others, being poisoned, ambush and attack, surviving on little, antagonising those you care about, creating life without the help of others
The Komodo dragon is the largest living species of lizard (growing to 2-3 metres) and found on islands throughout Indonesia. It is also quite venomous, and alongside the venom, carries a serious cocktail of harmful bacteria within its mouth. Komodo dragons tend to be apex predators in the environments that they live, and mostly survive on carrion; though they do hunt and eat pretty much anything they can catch (including children). They are one of the few vertebrates capable of ‘virgin births’ or producing offspring without the presence of a male; this is known as parthenogenesis.
