Komodo National Park, Indonesia



The Komodo dragon is the world’s largest lizard species. It is found mainly on the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rintja, Padar, and Flores in the Komodo National Park. They exist nowhere else in the world; they reach lengths of up to 3 meters or more, and weigh up to 70 kg. Their large size is attributed to island gigantism, since there are no other carnivorous animals to fill the niche on the islands where they live. These reptiles are swift runners and climbers with great appetites for deer and wild boar. There are only an estimated 1000 to 5000 of these monitor lizards living today.
