Komodo Dragons are very large lizards, with large, flexible tails, long pinkish tounges, and rough scales. Useallly they are a dull greyish-brown once they mature. But younger ones can be orange and yellow.
Komodo Dragons are quite terrifying and powerful when it comes to hunting. When hunting they use their bone breaking and and their very powerful and sharp claws to shred open larger prey like horses. And even if the prey escapes, they are slowly still on the edge of death. The Komodo Dragons bite is full of venom, it will follow its prey for two days and then suddenly, they will collapse over, and they will either die from poison or the komodo will finish them off. Adults can also have brown or Red scales.
A female Komodo will lay 9-25 eggs and then leave them. Some of the eggs may get eaten by birds, monitor lizards, and even other Komodo Dragons. The young will all hatch and scatter, as they will all hunt and eat each other. They spend their first years up in trees hunting birds and insects and also staying away from larger Komodos who can't climb up to eat them. After a few years they are old enough to live on the ground. males will search for mates and fight others for a female. They will mate and the life cycle starts over
