An animal that often strikes fear into creatures, including humans, is known as the Komodo Dragon. It is a solitary and most powerful predator. Not only are they adept at covering land, they are also excellent swimmers. In order to catch their prey, Komodo Dragons have been known to sit for hours hidden patiently waiting in vegetation for their prey to amble by. They also are well camouflaged by their grey-brown skin. The Komodo Dragon then ambushes it's victim with incredible speed and force. The Komodo Dragon exhibits the most useful trait of patience, something we too often have too little of.
