This is one animal I would not like to meet in a dark alley. Well, okay, in a dark jungle. It would be noshing on my leg before I could actually see it.

Komodo Dragon

I did go to the Denver Zoo years ago to see one in a brightly lit habitat, but it was being shy and hiding behind a rock. I can't blame it. If I were on display in a zoo I'd probably hide too.
