The Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) is a species of large monitor lizard native to the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar. It is the largest living species of lizard, growing up to 3 meters (10 feet) in length and weighing up to 70 kilograms (150 pounds). Komodo dragons are carnivorous and have been known to prey on mammals, birds, and other reptiles. They are also known to scavenge for carrion. Komodo dragons are formidable predators that use a combination of venomous saliva and sharp teeth to subdue and kill their prey. They are also agile and fast runners, and are able to swim short distances. The Komodo dragon is listed as a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Their populations are threatened by habitat loss and illegal poaching for the pet trade. Efforts are being made to protect and conserve this unique species.
