    Tourist attacked by Komodo dragon in Indonesia - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-39801275

    The 50-year-old victim, identified as Singaporean Lon Lee Alle, had reportedly ignored warnings not to get too close to take pictures.

    He was then "severely bitten" on his left leg.

    "A Komodo doesn't like to be disturbed when eating. He must have been too close," Komodo National Park chief Sudiyono told the Jakarta Post.

    Singaporean are usually "dumb" in these situations. We don't have a sense of danger awareness because it's almost too safe here. My Russian manager said if she hears a loud bang, everyone around will lie on the floor covering up, presuming it's gun shot in her home country. She was shocked when she sees Singaporeans looking around for the loud bang when she first experienced it here.

    I'm just glad no animals were forced to be put down because of "dumb" people endangering themselves.

    @ProBoxingInsidr no you don't

    @jefferz she's doing great, she comes out of quarantine on the 12th. Super fucking excited.

    @neverwas cute, I have a piebald ball. There's too many morphs out there for me to remember them all. But it's some sort of pastel or pastel variant.

    When I was at the mountain lion yesterday this guy had a service dog. That mountain lion wanted to fuck that dog up. It hit the glass hard. Was amazing.

    @Zookeeper Gabe on my facebook feed i saw a story that said they could bring back the caspian tiger from extinction. a little googling and apparently they can do that with quite a few species. what are your thoughts on that and would it mess up the balance in nature? also, is a whale shark cuter than an angora rabbit?

    Lol, my leopards used to stalk the service dogs hard. I've seen more a few different dogs pee they got so scared. Plus I hate it when people bring in poorly trained fake service animals. Fuck that.

    We really need to focus on saving what we currently have imo. Habitat is scarce enough and putting millions of dollars into bringing a species back from the dead doesn't do a whole lot of good unless there's plenty of habitat.

    Whale shark is cuter infinitely, I'll tell you why. Every rabbit no matter how cute looks like a mass murdering spawn of Satan when they yawn...

    that is a totally logical answer. i doubt that will happen though if we are indeed able to do it. Much like Jurassic Park, I think the curiosity will get the best of us. People will want to see species from before our time. But like you said, we need to save what we have and maybe just bring back a couple wooly mammoths.

    and good point about those rabbits

    That would have been a bad move lol, also was it a real service dog? All the poorly trained service dogs I see at the zoo are fake ones that people lie about.
