Reese is on the move again. Where in the world is our wonder boy visiting today?
Here’s a hint;
This location is the only place on earth where you can visit real-life dragons!
Did you guess Komodo National Park? You’re right!
Even though you can’t tell from Reese’s selfie, this park (in Indonesia) is home to many other creatures including 1,000 species of fish, some 260 species of reef-building coral, and 70 species of sponges. There are also dugong, sharks, manta rays, at least 14 species of whales, dolphins, and sea turtles that call the surrounding waters, home.
Let’s explore Reese’s vacation spot further.
Did you know?
The Komodo Dragon is the largest living lizard in the world. Komodo National Park allows these lizards to roam free and protected.
Komodos can measure up to 10 feet long (3 meters) and weigh up to 200 pounds (90.1 kg). Some have even reached weights of more than 300 pounds (136 kg)!
Local guides took Reese on a tour of the komodo’s natural habitat. Here he was able to watch these large lizards while they ate – they can consume up to 80 percent of their own body weight!
Reese was very careful to stay a safe distance away, as komodos have a nasty and venomous bite. Plus, they can run up to 12 miles per hour (19 kph).
Thank you, Reese, for showing us Komodo National Park.
Where in the world is he off to now? Be sure to join us next time when Reese will explore another fun, fact-filled location.
