Real Life Dragon

The Komodo dragon is a renowned giant, with the average male measuring it at around 8 feet long; some exceptional individuals do grow up to 10 feet long. Incidentally, the longest lizard of all is not that Komodo but rather its much slimmer relative the Salvadori monitor from New Guinea, although it must be noted that two thirds of its 9 feet body length is made up by its tail. The Komodo though is the heaviest lizard of all, with an average weight of 130Ibs with some reaching nearly 180Ibs. It’s also one of the most fearsome predators you could ever have the misfortune of encountering anywhere on the planet. It has large, sharp, serrated teeth for cutting and tearing prey, but its concealed weapon is its bacteria laden saliva. Once bitten, the victim commonly escapes, but within a few days the effects of the bacteria take hold. All the while, the dragon is tracking it down using its acute sense of smell, a sense that also makes it a very efficient scavenger.
