Re: Dragon's Paradise Lost - re-planting KD's in Oz

How lethal the venom of the ora is for humans? The guys around the
lizard seem to be very confident. Or is it that venomous lizards are
very well tempered when domestic? (I once read Edward Cope had a Gila
moster as a pet - good for Cope).

I once saw a documentary with a native of Flores saying an ora bited
him in the wild and he escaped by cutting the ora's head (disgusting
to imagine) with a machete. In case of this being true, the venom may
not be so lethal for us.
