  • Short Summary

    Various shots of very large lizards in a zoo enclosure.

  • Description

    "And those reptiles, scientifically known as Varanus Komodoensis, certainly do resemble the fabulous dragons." High angle shot of two of the lizards in a zoo enclosure. Various shots of the lizards.

    "They belong to a Malay family 1,000,000 years old, and eat spring chickens." One of the lizards walks towards the camera flicking its tongue in and out. "The dinosaur's 2nd cousins - claw-footed, sabre-toothed, 9 feet long and quick-tempered." C/U of two lizards. Someone off screen is prodding one with a stick to make it move. C/U of head of one of the lizards, it is resting its head on the back of another.

    Note: leader and paper records state that this is a Pathe Sound Pictorial item but there is no sound. Main title states "Pathe Pictorial" so perhaps this silent version was also produced in sound for the PSP.
