Meeting Komodo's deadly dragon

Encounters between giant lizards and humans lead to increased number of attacks.

    The meat-eating Komodo dragon can grow to more than three metres in length and is the world's largest living lizard.

    Although it is considered a vulnerable species and protected by the government, the lizard is coming into contact with humans more frequently.

    As Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports, that has led to an increasing spate of attacks.
