The Komodo Dragon is one of the oldest, scariest, baddest reptiles on earth. They grow up to 10 ft. and can weigh 150 lb. and are found mainly on the Indonesian islands. Their mouths are full of deadly bacteria, which they use to slowly kill pray with a bite, while waiting near by. There has even been a fatal attack on a person. An 8 year old boy was killed in 2007, on Komodo Island. The child was bitten in half and died from massive blood loss. Attacks on people are very uncommon however, this one was a 1st in 33 years.

A True Killing Machine!
The younger dragons actually don't mind sharing their food, unless a bigger one comes along, then they have to wait their turn. Cannibalism is not uncommon among komodos.
