Thousands of years ago, the Sumba region turned out to be home to various animals which have now become extinct. These animals are miniature elephants, rats and giant lizards, as well as Komodo dragon species.

This was also disclosed in a journal report entitled ‘Proceedings of the Royal Society B’. Which, the report refers to the discovery of these animal fossils.
