We all know the feeling when the Australian heat becomes too hot to handle. Well, this Komodo Dragon has found the perfect way to beat it.

The reptile called Kraken looks like it had an awesome time on his daily enrichment walk at The Australian Reptile Park, stopping to cool itself down by relaxing under a sprinkler on Tuesday.

"Komodo dragons are the world's largest lizard, with males growing up to 3 metres long and sometimes reaching over 100kg," The Australian Reptile Park website explains.

Enrichment at the reptile park is comprised of activities that help to enhance the type of care they provide. They basically try to create a more stimulating environment and draw out some of the natural behaviours of their animals.

These activities can include a number of things such as exploration, foraging, locomotion, social interaction, manipulating objects or simply just playing around.
