Pulau Komodo

Hello,

How are you all? I hope you all are well and have great spirit in this day. Today I will tell you about Pulau Komodo (Komodo Island).

This island is located in Nusa Tenggara Archipelago and part of Komodo National Park. This park covers  Komodo Island, Rinca Island, Padar Island, and other small islands. Komodo island itself was named by Dutchman. 

When you heard komodo you will imagine that this island would be full of komodo. This island exactly becomes pristine habitat of komodo (Varanus komodoensis). There are over 2500 komodos here, which are rare. This giant lizard is one of ancient animals which is first found in 1910. You can see it close with tour guide there. But not only komodo lived here, but also many kinds of flora and fauna, such as sterculia oblongata and Caesalpinia sappan L as florawhich have some benefits to use. The other fauna are horse, wild bull, ape, snake, and diverse birds.

We often see the beach which has either brown or white color. But, in this beach we'll find pink sand, one of only seven in the world. The pink sand is a mixture of white and red sand. The color red itself came from a broken red coral fragments. Fantastic, right?

Other than it, this island has also beautiful marine life, just like Taman Laut Bunaken. This island has a blend of Asian and Australian fauna. There are 253 species of coral, 70 species of sponge, and 1.000 species of fish. There are also  dugong, sharks, 14 species of whale, dolphin, and turtle live here.

  9. I love the pink sand, I've have never seen that before so
    pretty compared to the prehistoric lizards. I do like them though, they're sort of funny creatures.
