Komodo dragons are in fact, lizards, and they are by far the largest lizards on Earth. These lizards can grow up to ten feet long (three meters), approximately the length of a small car. They’re heavy, too – they can weigh up to 154 pounds on average, but have been weighed up to 135 kilograms, which is approximately the same weight as a panda bear!
Komodo dragons are known for their notorious, venomous hunting strikes. It used to be believed that these lizards had various strains of bacteria in their saliva that killed prey, but this theory was discredited by the University of Queensland and it is now believed that they secrete venom proteins similar to that of venomous snakes.
Komodo dragons are only present on five Indonesian islands, and in no other country in the world. Four of these islands make up what is known as Komodo National Park, and the fifth island is that of Flores. The main island that is home to the largest amount of komodo dragons in the world is named after these lizards; it is so-named Komodo Island.
A rare moment where the komodo dragon tries to climb a tree but because the size of the komodo is too big so it can’t climb, but the bat is perched on a rather low tree so that the komodo can reach it by standing on its two hind legs and easily catches the bat.
I’ve seen millions of these fruit bats in my native country. They fly out at sunset in cr.azy numbers looking for food. They prefer to hang very high in the trees. It is nearly impossible to see one hanging this low in full daylight. This bat was either tied to that branch by the cameraman, or it was si.ck/dy.ing. This is not normal.
