Dinner is coming–and it could be you.
Fortunately for everybody’s peace of mind, Komodo dragons are rare and tend not to live in populated areas. Which is good, because this–the world’s largest living lizard–is one of the few land animals with the inclination and the ability to eat people.
No kidding–you really can get eaten. By a lizard!
This creature grows up to 10 feet long and 300 pounds. It’s an expert ambush predator. That means you don’t even know it’s there until it takes a bite out of you. And the bite is poisonous.
They’re very easy to avoid, though. Just don’t visit any of the islands where they live.
