This actually looks more like a water monitor and not a Komodo Dragon. Water monitors are far more common in this area as well. Regardless, these are some great photos!

That's really cool, I had never saw a komodo dragon.

Bangkok, a lake is there, full of them. Apparently these komodo dragons keep an eye on catfish which are breeding too fast.
