Biggest Komodo Dragon in the World, The Mark Anders Channel
Harry Callahan: Where does this take place?
Paul Kersey: The Salton Sea and if you’re not familiar with the Salton Sea and all of the crazy, outlandish things that are happening there, go back to some of our previous episodes. Now, this is nothing out of the ordinary when you see two large Komodo dragons just blowing your mind here, just tearing each other apart. This is what’s happening down there.
Harry Callahan: I want to out on this photo and show more perspective so you see where this is. This is very far in the background and we traveled to this area to get some better shots but we didn’t see any Komodo dragons but we did see this whole wreckage here of these cars.
Paul Kersey: This happens over and over in this area. What’s the speculation on these burned out cars and buildings?
Harry Callahan: I don’t know if they’re crystal meth labs that blew up but there’s a lot-
Paul Kersey: It would lead you to believe that that’s really what’s happening here is crystal meth.
Harry Callahan: What strikes me funny about this area is there’s a bunch of fires everywhere but people generally rebuilt their houses but here they kind of leave them up as monuments, as tourist attractions.
Paul Kersey: Tourist attractions to…crystal meth labs or what is going on. This place is so bizarre.
Harry Callahan: Yeah, there’s so many things happening. Give people a quick rundown of what happens in Salton Sea and in Slab City combined.
Paul Kersey: You’ve got witchcraft, you’ve got feral animals, you’ve got giant snakes, anacondas, pythons, people that have been let out of prison on early release that are living off the grid, you’ve got people out there with their solar panels, you’ve got Bigfoot sightings, you’ve got alien sightings, volcanos, a military base,you’ve got murderers, everything you could think of. The FTRA’s down there riding the trains, riding the rails.
Harry Callahan: A very dangerous train gang and you look at this area and you think it looks like a total desert but there’s a very marshy area. This is one of the most agricultural areas in California. There’s a lot of water. A lot of irrigation going through this area.
Paul Kersey: This is the very location where stories like theTeenage Mutant Ninjas stories came from because of the pollution down there in the Salton Sea.
Harry Callahan: A lot of dead fish but these larger than normal Komodo dragons, these look like they’re as tall as the truck. Don’t they, that white truck?
Paul Kersey: These are, what, eight foot tall?
Harry Callahan: I don’t know but including the tail that looks like a 15 foot Komodo dragon. The biggest on record is around 10 feet.
Paul Kersey: When you look at it up against that truck, it’s huge. That things really big.
Harry Callahan: Primarily because they get a lot of fish without a lot of competition. They’re not hunted and they get a lot of food. They grow at a lot quicker rate like snakes.
Paul Kersey: Who knows what kind of pollution is in that water? They’re eating that polluted fish. Who knows what they’re getting?
Harry Callahan: So, you’re saying that maybe they’re abnormal looking.
Paul Kersey: There’s some mutations happening here. I mean look at the size of those Komodos. Where do you see things like that?
