As a young boy, reptile expert Romulus ("Rom") Whitaker dreamed of finding dragons. Years later, the successful herpetologist decided to set out to discover the real-life origins of these mythical monsters. Rom's quest leads him to Indonesia's Komodo Island, where he sees a wild Komodo dragon for the first time. When one chases after him, he's forced to beat a hasty retreat: if it catches him, Rom could become lunch. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
