How to Flay a Dragon

Last month, I went to the Royal Veterinary College to watch a team of four scientists skin and dissect a dead Komodo dragon. The result is this piece, published today at the Atlantic, which features some fascinating dragon biology, Game of Thrones, jokes, just a tiny bit of gore, and one of the best anecdotes I’ve ever had the pleasure to commit to writing. This was a lot of fun to report and write. I hope it’s equally fun to read.
