About Komodo Dragon
The Komodo Dragon is the largest lizard in the world. They are part of a group of lizards called monitors. Monitors have long, forked tongues and powerful legs. Komodo Dragons can weigh more than 200 pounds (90kg).
They are meat-eaters, eating lots of different animals. They are strong enough to kill a horse. They use their forked tongue to “taste” the air for living or dead animals to eat.
The Komodo Dragons are an endangered species. There are only about 5000 left in the world and they are now protected by law.
