Komodo National Park – The New 7 Wonders of The World
How would you feel if you could travel back in time
and actually see dinosaurs?
Is it going to be as exciting as an African safari? No, it would of course be 100 times more exciting than that!
Komodo dragon, as some of you may already know, is the closest living creature to dinosaurs. In fact, Komodo dragon started their evolutionary journey 40 million years ago. They were originally from Asia but along with time, they migrated to Australia. The collision between Australia and Southeast Asia 15 million years ago brought Komodo dragon to Komodo National Park, Indonesia, which has since become their natural ecosystem.
An adult Komodo dragon can weigh up to 70 kilograms and up to 3 meters in length. Their diet includes carrion, invertebrates, birds and mammals. They are both scavengers and predators. One interesting fact that most people don’t know is that a young Komodo dragon is arboreal by nature. They spend their first few years in the trees, where it is relatively easy for young Komodo dragons to avoid predators.
Recently, Komodo National Park has made its way to become one of the finalists of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Only 28 applicants were selected out of 440 participants from 220 countries. We, as Indonesians, are very excited and privileged to receive this honor.
However, the campaign does not stop here. We are now entering the third and final phase in which the wonders will be chosen by citizens of the world. Let’s support the Komodo National Park by submitting your ballot on www.new7wonders.com
Vote and then visit Komodo National Park for a remarkable life experience!
