Komodo dragon

The Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) is a large lizard species endemic to a few islands in Indonesia. Here’s a description of its distribution by country:

  1. Indonesia: Komodo dragons are found primarily in Indonesia, specifically on the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar in the Lesser Sunda Islands. These islands are part of the Komodo National Park, which was established to protect the species and its habitat.

Komodo dragons are apex predators, known for their impressive size, powerful jaws, and venomous bite. They primarily inhabit dry savannah forests and open grasslands, where they hunt a variety of prey, including deer, wild boar, and other smaller mammals. Despite their fearsome reputation, Komodo dragons are vulnerable to habitat loss, poaching, and conflicts with humans. Conservation efforts are underway to protect their remaining habitats and ensure the survival of this iconic species.
