The Komodo Dragon is the largest land lizard of this day. It has a bacterial bite that can kill its prey in minutes. It has a good sense of smell and is very fast. Once it gets its prey sent it will not stop till it has eaten it. It can eat any animal, human and even its own kind. Younger Komodo Dragons can climb trees to stay out of the way of the much larger dragons. Komodo Dragon is part of family of lizards called monitor lizards. During the Ice Age there was a much larger version of this lizard that lived in Australia. Now this lizard is found only in some islands in the Malaysia island chain.
