Varanus komodoensis

My favorite animal.  It is a known fact by my friends and family that I have always loved Komodo Dragons.  Every so often I hop on eBay and try to buy any unusual Komodo Dragon things I can find.  I have things from coins, stamps, wooden sculptures, pens, and more on my shelf of collectibles along side my vintage camera collection.  If you own a Playstation 3 and play online you may see me around as ‘Komodo Vs You’.  Sounds evil right?  I mean, who would want to get in a fight with a Komodo Dragon?  Not me!

Why I love Komodo Dragons (I really don’t know 100% why I love them but I do)

  • The largest lizard
  • The oldest living lizard
  • Not venomous but has so much bacteria that one small scratch will kill
  • FAST
  • Can climb
  • STRONG
  • Love to be pet

  2. Jennifer,

    I suggest researching more around the internet. Although I love Komodo Dragons, I am not expert on the subject of lizards.

    Thanks for reading my post!
