Rescued European Divers Almost Became Komodo Dragon Food

There was the report of the five European divers that had gone missing during a trip to Indonesia. They were eventually rescued. Luckily, they got rescued.
Recently, five European divers went missing during a trip to Indonesia. Luckily, they were all rescued. So far, it seemed that the five divers were rescued in the nick of time. They were discovered on the island known as Rinca. While the island is void of human life, non-human life is another story. They got a chance to experience the wildlife of Rinca.
For two nights on Rinca, the five divers had to defend themselves. Why? To answer that, Rinca is the home to the Komodo dragon. The Komodo dragon is the largest species of lizard in the world. Asides from Rinca, these large lizards inhabit and dominate the other islands of Komodo, Flores, Gili Motang, and Gili Dasami. Those things can grow an average of between 6.5 to 10 feet.
For the most part, Komodo dragons eat dead bodies. However, they are not above hunting prey. Those five divers more than made excellent prey. The divers had to use rocks to scare the Komodo dragon off.
Luckily, the divers were rescued. If not, they could’ve eventually become Komodo dragon food.
