When the Komodo dragon attacks it goes straight for the neck …
the Komodo dragon is fascinating because it is the largest lizard on the globe. Full grown is around 140-150 kilograms but most of them weigh approximate 70 kilos they have dry scaly skin.

the Komodo dragons bacteria is deadly it can kill animals within seconds even humans or if its a big animal or human it takes days for it to die .

the Komodo's tongue is the thing that allows it to smell the tongue can smell up to a mile .
the Komodo dragons favourite foods contain bunnies ,birds ,buffalo and wild pig.
the Komodo dragon is attracted to blood just like sharks so if 1 Komodo bites an animal others will come and help so thats why they're so successful and always win the attack because they're smart.

The Komodo dragons predator are other Komodo dragons .they don't have any other predators because they are at  the top of their food chain.The young Komodo dragons hide in trees and bushes to avoid being attacked by another Komodo dragon.the Komodo dragon doesn't reach adulthood until approximately 8 to 9 years old.from then on they will become a predator of their own and not worry so much about becoming the prey.

the Komodo dragons are distributed throughout the lessersunda islands of rinca,Komodo, flores and the smaller islands of giii,montang and padder their natural habitat is extremely harsh. these arid volcanic islands have steep slopes and little available water throughout most of the year.a short monsoon season often produces local flooding. the average annual temperature is approximately 80 degres. they are situated mostly in the lower arid forest and savanna .their living conditions make them a very hardy lizard that can withstand changes in their natural habitat.
