    Humans don't need to hunt to live. There is food everywhere. Sure some isn't good for you but it's still food. I know tribes need to kill to live but they kill prey instead of killing predators and saying "oh we killed this wolf because it was eating 'our' deer." or some nonesense like that and as a bonus they actually try to use the animal in full unlike those who kill wolves and coyotes for fur then dump the rest. I don't care about the fur I care about the meat...I want it eaten off of any creature hunters want to kill.

    All reptiles are akin to us dragons. The komodo dragon is a lizard and as a larger monitor type lizard they eat rodents when fully grown but as with any lizard especially the smaller ones they eat insects. If you wanted to make your point bash reptiles you would mention bearded dragons eating other lizards but my come back to that would be humans are the ones killing off the insects with harmful chemicals so it's done out of need...as for those who force feed anoles to bearded dragons...that's just sick. Reptiles all suffer from bloodlust yet insects are plenty and humans don't like them anyways so we should get points for that.

    I'm sorry my dragon tongue ignores grammar but the words and meanings are still there. Try translating words in a tongue you don't know then come back...i'm doing quite good for someone who translates my words

    Even if I was a heartless *******, I'd disagree with this post. First, while it's (maybe), true that humans are at the apex of the ecology, we still NEED a healthy, bio-diverse ecology. We should value other species because we NEED them.

    Now, I don't think I am a heartless *******, and the more we find out about other species, the less true your orientation becomes. Levels of pleasure, pain, emotion and awareness in other species is far greater than what we thought even a few years ago.

    Finally, who would want to live in some dystopia in which all the other species have been killed off, there is no nature to be rejuvenated in, and all we have to eat is algae porridge.

    Hey dragon, can we eat you after you're dead?
    I'd like to be able to tell my friends I've eaten dragon meat.
    Also, how big is your head?
    Why? No particular reason, just curious. :)

    Komodo dragons have been known to kill people. Not often, but much like a handful of snakes, they can and sometimes do kill people. As for komodos, they eat water buffalo, deer, and sometimes even humans.

    I've seen some large lizards in Borneo.
    When I was staying in Sandakan, one popped out of a storm drain attracting many locals with sticks to prod it back in.
    At one stage it was beside a car and was denting the door with its tail flick.
    This is why all the grates in the street are covered with bricks or rocks.

    Still, I'd rather take on a Komodo dragon then a crocodile.
    They hangout at the beaches in my hometown.
    If you ever get chased by either, remember to zig zag.
    They're faster than you. :)

    Oh boo freaking hoo "they kill people" your point is? Humans kill them too...they kill humans for trespassing. Their bite being toxic helps the death of it's prey be fairly quick. One can hunt while also being respectful to the creatures they take the lives of. Yes they eat larger prey and humans...but what's so damn special about humans that it's such a big deal? Humans have such a high population you know.

    zig zaging won't work and stop messing with us reptiles. If you mess with us then of course you're looking to be attacked strictly in retaliation

    At this point, it should be to find you memory because it appears that you have forgotten what we were talking about.

    That wasn't my point, at all. Your claim was "they eat rodents," and also "as with any lizard...they eat insects." My point was those claims are false. They eat things far larger than rodents, even larger than the capybara.They even sometimes eat each other.
    It's sad. The Art of War, though strategies for war, views armed conflict against an opposing army as a failure. In many ways, it parallels Bruce Lee's sentiment that the best way to win a fight is to win without fighting.

    I don't think anyone has an issue with that. However, the issue does arise when you try to say you're a fantasy creature that does not exist. And in addition to that, not even Denis Avner/Stalking Cat said he was actually a tiger.
