Facts:

  • Type: Reptile
  • Diet: Carnivore
  • Average lifespan in the wild: 30 years+
  • Size: 10 feet (3 m)
  • Weight: 330 lbs (150 kg)
  • Did you know? Komodo dragons can run up to 11 miles an hour (18 kph) in short bursts.
  • Protection status: Endangered.
  • Have thrived in the harsh climate of Indonesia's Lesser Sunda Islands for millions of years.
  • Their existence was unknown to humans until about 100 years ago.
  • The heaviest lizards on Earth.
  • They have long, flat heads with rounded snouts, scaly skin, bowed legs, and huge, muscular tails.
  • Dominant predators on the handful of islands they inhabit, they will eat almost anything, including carrion, deer, pigs, smaller dragons, and even large water buffalo and humans.
  • When hunting, Komodo dragons rely on camouflage and patience, lying in wait for passing prey. When a victim ambles by, the dragon springs, using its powerful legs, sharp claws and serrated, shark-like teeth to eviscerate its prey.
  • Animals that escape the jaws of a Komodo will only feel lucky briefly. Dragon saliva teems with over 50 strains of bacteria, and within 24 hours, the stricken creature usually dies of blood poisoning.
  • Dragons calmly follow an escapee for miles as the bacteria takes effect, using their keen sense of smell to hone in on the corpse. A dragon can eat a whopping 80 percent of its body weight in a single feeding.
  • Population of about 3,000 to 5,000 Komodo dragons on the islands of Komodo, Gila Motang, Rinca, and Flores.
  • However, a dearth of egg-laying females, poaching, human encroachment, and natural disasters has driven the species to endangered status.

Interesting Facts

  • Small (young) Komodo Dragons are accomplished tree climbers.
  • Komodo Dragons are cannibals, eating their young and occasionally their eggs.
  • The
    Dragon's teeth are large, curved and serrated and arranged so that the
    maximum amount of flesh can be bitten off and swallowed whole.
  • The saliva of a Komodo Dragon contains over 50 types of bacteria, seven of them highly septic.
  • Under severe environmental conditions, Komodo Dragons have been know to swim between islands.
  • Infant Komodo Dragons may roll themselves in entrails and faecies to prevent being eaten by mature Komodo Dragons.
  • Komodo
    Dragon's sense of smell is powerful enough to smell carrion up to four
    kilometres away and sea turtle eggs up to half-a-metre under the sand.
  • Other than finding cool spaces, the only mechanism a Komodo Dragon has for lowering its body temperature is panting.
  • The
    genus Varanus (Monitor Lizards) emerged in central Asia around 40
    million years ago, most of the Komodo's related species are found in
    Australia.
  • The
    largest risk to the survival of the Komodo Dragon is encroachment by
    humans, destruction of environment and poaching of prey such as the
    Sunda deer.

Acttualy, out there somewhere, the extict animals are still alive. But really rarely to be found. But of course the big dragons, dinosaurs and other big extinct animal is already extinct. But I think the Dodo birds are still out there rarely to be found.
