I just came back from the local pet store (picking up some dogfood) and I was looking at the reptiles they have now cause they get different ones all the time from local breeders in Dallas and Austin. They have some Iggy's as usual and some leopard and fat tail geckos and a few "red Tail Boas" and an Albino Burm. So a lady was asking about how big the Burm and the Boas get adn I was explainin it to her. She told me that a family out in Sweetwater (small town near Abilene) had a Komodo Dragon and that it ate their Dog but it's nice to the kids. I told her that it's probably a Savanna Monitor or Nile Monitor which look similar to the komodo dragon because they are all Monitors. She argued with me for 30 minutes that it was a Komodo Dragon not a Monitor. So I told her that if they really do have a Komodo dragon and they got caught with it they'd be spending a long time in Jail. She said everybody there knows they have it. I just walked away laughing because I know it's just a Savanna or Nile Monitor but she's been convinced it's a Komodo Dragon. Oh this lady doesn't work there she was just looking at the reptiles but it's just so funny that the Hicks out here would believe that... man the locals are kind of out there.
