I enjoyed the simple condensed text used in this book that allows the reader to see the major points but not overwhelm them with superfluous details that take away from the story of the Komodo dragon. Furthermore, Crump provides the reader with a detailed bibliography as well as suggestions for further reading, glossary, and index for ease of reference when reading the book. She even suggests some web sites for further reading.
I also enjoyed the large, colorful photographs sprinkled throughout the text. My favorite picture is found on page 27 that demonstrates the "gentle giant" nature of the species by showing Judith Bryja at the Houston Zoo "cuddling up" with her favorite Komodo dragon as she reads out of the seminal Auffenberg text on the "Komodo monitor." The pictures do much to enhance the reading enjoyment but also the understanding of the text.Read more ›
