Komodo Dragon nicole junkermann epstein
First thing first, the Komodo Dragon is scary.
We are talking about the largest species of lizard in the world. It can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh up to 300 pounds.
The Komodo Dragon is covered with a scaly skin that is a speckled brownish yellow allowing it to be camouflaged and hard to see. It has giant tail that is as long as its body. It has a set of 60 sharp serrated teeth and a long yellow forked tongue.
Its habitat is restricted to the small Indonesian islands of Komodo, nicole junkermann, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang and Gili Dasami.
It moves agilely on ground despite its considerable weight (it can run at 20 km/h for short distances), is a very good swimmer and can even travel between nearby islands when sea currents are nicole junkermann epstein favourable.
Unlike a snake, which injects venom into a victim through its sharp fangs, a Komodo dragon's venom seeps into large wounds it makes on an animal it attacks. The animal may escape the grip of the dragon, but it won't escape the venom that will eventually bring it down. By then, the Komodo dragon will be not far behind, tracking down its fleeing victim with its keen sense of smell epstein.
Female Komodo dragons can have virgin births. This means that they don't need a male to fertilize an egg for it to hatch. Creating offspring without the help of the opposite gender is called asexual reproduction. Komodo dragons can carbyne reproduce through both sexual and asexual reproduction.
