    For real, sounds like a good way for someone to get their face ate off.

    Also read it as “the adults in the house forget to secure the house before going to bed.”

    Yes. Sometimes on a Friday or Sat night maybe I don’t have all my senses about me to remember to double check everything

    Komodo dragons have poison in their saliva. The mother wanted to help but going over there was suicide. It was over already.

    Is it poison or just very nasty “flesh eating” bacteria in their saliva?

    I think the conventional wisdom about the Komodo dragons bite has changed fairly recently. I don’t remember if it changed to/from bacteria to venom or vice versa.

    These details I don’t know, but the mother needed to protect what was left anyway. Hearthbraking because I am a pussy but she looked her baby in the eye the whole time and did not let him die alone. This is fascinating to me.

    "Based on a thorough analysis of the dragon’s skull, Fry thinks that they kill with a grip, rip and drip tactic. They bite down with serrated teeth and pull back with powerful neck muscles. The result: huge gaping wounds. The venom then quickens the loss of blood and sends the prey into shock."

    Guys, I have made a final ruling on this: The mother buffalo was traumatized by what was happening but knew if she intervened there was a good chance she was going down -- whether it be immediate or after the poison set in and ultimately killed her. If she has other babies they all would have died following her death. She made the right call.

    I'll bet the other mama buffaloes were like "if some lizard was eating my kid, I'd go put a hoof in their ass."

    And then the other mama buffalos get a bite on the leg. They think they are fine but the poison and bacteria starts to set in and they eventually lose their leg. No longer as mobile, they're killed by a predator and then their entire family is subjected to the same fate.

    Not if the water buffalo prays enough for the wound to go away.

    Ah thank you. That’s what I was referring too. It used to believed that it was bacteria in the saliva...now they know that the Komodo does, in fact, produce venom.

    Interesting factoid: Oliver Reed (Proximo) literally drank himself to death during a break in shooting. They had to CGI him in for the rest. He was a notorious alcoholic and had quit drinking for this role (believe it was a contractual obligation).

    “Some said he drank eight pints of lager, a dozen double rums and half a bottle of whiskey in a drinking match against sailors on shore leave from H.M.S. Cumberland. He was 61 years old. Fellow Gladiator actor Omid Djalili said in 2016: "He hadn't had a drink for months before filming started ... Everyone said he went the way he wanted, but that's not true. It was very tragic. He was in an Irish bar and was pressured into a drinking competition. He should have just left, but he didn't."
