Tourists snap photos of a Komodo Dragon named "Hercules" at Komodo Island, Indonesia 28 March 2019. Known for their venomous bites, it can grow up to 3 meters in length and 70 kilos in weight. It was reported that government officials are planning to close the popular island to tourists for one year starting 2020. The closure comes in response to an attempt to smuggle 41 Komodo Dragons for $35,000 each. Officials announced that they will conduct a conservation program aimed at protecting and preserving their habitat in order to increasing the population. Komodo Island is a part of the UNESCO-designated Komodo National Park, and it has grown increasingly popular, receiving average of 10,000 visitors per month, due to the addition of new flights and hotels in the nearby town on the island of Flores. It is estimated that there are more than 5,000 dragons spread across the national park's islands and some coastal regions of western and northern Flores. In addition to the dragons, the park offers exceptional diving/snorkeling and spectacular scenery.

"Spider web Rice Field " in near Ruteng, Flores, Indonesia. The pattern is intentional, but rather the result of the traditional communal agriculture of the indigenous Manggarai people. Centuries ago, the cultivated land, known as lingko, was shared by the entire village. The communal fields were circular, with the lodok at the center, where ceremonial rituals were held around the harvest. Each family was allocated a segment of the rice field, radiating from the center outward. (Each was inaugurated by the sacrifice of a water buffalo.) The more resources a family had, the larger their slice of the pie; at the time, the rice fields were shaped like pie charts. Later, the paddies were further subdivided by the decedents of the original owners, leading to the striking, web-like shape of the lingko today. Photographed on 26 March 2019.
