Still Waters

The Mythic Bite of the Komodo Dragon

4 posts in this topic

To a mediaeval mapmaker, the world was a vast and scary place. Explorers that braved the seemingly endless oceans in search of new worlds often didn’t return, and those that did carried with them nightmarish tales of monsters and serpents. It was the mapmaker’s task to warn future travelers of the dangers that awaited them in far-off lands. Based on their drawings, I cannot even begin to imagine the beasts that haunted these cartographer’s dreams. Their creative expressions of fear were eventually distilled into a single, ominous phrase: here be dragons.

Very interesting article!

Poor water buffalo.

I knew of sheep attacked by wild dogs on a farm and they too ran into the farm's only pond after being mortally wounded.
