Growing up to 2,5 - 3 meters in length, 45 – 150 kg weighs and able to run at speeds of 20 km per hour. Their ancestors roamed the earth up to about half a million years ago. They are both carnivorous and fearsome predators, utilizing a strategy of stealth and power to capture prey. Komodos live on carrion of goats, deer, and even the carcasses of their own kind.
Komodo are protected by law and though they are considered harmless, it is advisable to keep them at a distance. Komodo island is now a nature reserve, being part of a National Park. It is home to a number of rare bird species, wild buffalo, horses, boar, Timor deer, Macaque monkey, palm civet cats and wild pigs, which are prey to the lizards as well.
