More to see than the incredible Komodo Dragons
There is no doubt that Komodo dragons and world class diving sites are the main attractions to visit in Komodo National Park. However, this is not the only life you will find in this amazing area, there is another type of fauna that is also worth exploring.
Talking about the ocean, life is beyond abundant: there are more than 1,000 species of tropical fish, 260 species of coral, and rare marine mammals. Although the terrestrial fauna is much smaller than the marine one, the life you can find on the islands is very important from a conservation perspective, as some species are endemic. Most of the mammals have Asian origins, such as the Timor deer, water buffalo, wild boar, crab-eating macaque, palm civet, Rinca rat and fruit bats. Domestic mammals within the park include goats, horses, cats and dogs.
