The Komodo dragon is the largest known species of lizard. It can grow to be 10 feet long and weigh 150 pounds. Komodo dragons carry an anticoagulant in glands located inside their mouths, which helps them “predigest” their prey before ultimately consuming it.
Scientific Name: Varanus komodoensis
Characteristics: Like all Safari wildlife models, our Komodo dragon figurine is hand crafted and professionally painted for true-to-life detail. Although Komodo dragons can pray upon animals as big as deer, they rarely attack humans.
Size and Color: 11 inches long and 3.75 inches tall, this model is an inch shorter than an American ruler and about as tall as a deck of cards stood upright. Komodo dragons are always slate gray, although dust and sand sometimes sticks to their bodies, making them look light brown.
The Komodo Dragon is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
