If you were to search the words “bucket list” and “Komodo dragon” you’ll find many travel enthusiasts that discuss their desire to “someday” see the great Komodo dragon.

The dragons are found on the islands of the Indonesian archipelago – Komodo, Rinca, Gili Motang, and the island of Flores.

Here are five amazing facts about the dragon according to Earthnworld.com:

  1. They are the largest species of lizards, and can grow up to 10 feet in length and weigh approximately 200 pounds.
  2. The carnivorous species love to eat pigs, deer, snakes, fish, and water buffalos. However, adult Komodo dragons are cannibals that can eat their own species. Roughly 10% of their diet is made of newly hatched Komodo dragon babies.
  3. The animal’s species has a forked tongue just like snakes, which help them in locating their prey, usually by smell. They are capable of smelling carrion from up to five miles away, by first using their flickering forked tongues.  In doing so, they pick up microscopic taste particles, literally tasting the air.
  4. The Komodo dragons prefer to hunt during the day because they aren’t able to see clearly at night. They also have a poor sense of hearing.
  5. The lifespan of the animal species is 30 years in the wild and only a few years in captivity.
