It has been an absolutely spectacular trip to the Lesser Sundas to see Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. Terima kasih banyak to our friend and guide, Ajis Azis, for leading us into the savannah, forest, and ocean day and night in our search for herpetofauna. From manta rays to spitting cobras and turquoise vipers, every moment was surreal and unforgettable, and we can’t wait to return some day!
