KOMODO DRAGON

Part of the Lesser Sunda chain island, Komodo Island is located 7 degrees below the equator between the Sumbawa and Flores in East Nusa Tenggara province with the surface area of 390 kmē with over 4000 inhabitants and the part of Komodo National Park. Beside Komodo Island the park includes other two larger islands Rinca and Padar, as well as numerous smaller ones, with a total area of 1817 kmē and 603 kmē of it is the land.

On the Komodo National Park, there are most famous and the most unique species, is the Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis), with the length can reach more than 3 meters (9.8 f) and weigh as much as 90 kilograms (198 pound), that's make them become the largest lizard in the world. Komodo dragons were first recorded by Western scientists in 1910, now less than 2500 of flesh-eating 'dragon' inhabit the Park's dramatic Landscape, where rugged hillsides of dry savannah and pockets of monsoon forests contrast starkly with the brilliant white sandy beaches and sparkling blues waters surging over kaleidoscopic corals.

This member of the monitor lizard family (Varanidae) with it unusual size is attributed to island gigantism, since there are no other carnivorous animals to fill the niche on the islands where they live, these lizards dominate the ecosystems in which they live. Their large size is also explained by the Komodo dragon's low metabolic rate. Komodo dragons eat mostly carrion, they will also hunt and ambush prey including invertebrates, birds, and mammals.

Mating begins between May and August, and the eggs are laid in September. About twenty eggs are deposited in abandoned megapode nests and incubated for seven to eight months, hatching in April, when insects are most plentiful. Young Komodo dragons are vulnerable and therefore dwell in trees, safe from predators and cannibalistic adults. They take around three to five years to mature, and may live as long as fifty years. They are among the rare vertebrates capable of parthenogenesis, in which females may lay viable eggs if males are absent.

Their large size and fearsome reputation make them popular zoo exhibits. In the wild their range has contracted due to human activities and they are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. They are protected under Indonesian law. Komodo National Park, was founded to aid protection efforts.
