habits of komodo dragons
Komodo dragons do not protect their young. Once the eggs are laid, that is it as far as parental involvement is concerned. The eggs incubate for around 8 months, and once the …young are born, they scramble up trees where they are safer from their cannibalistic elders and other predators.
A Komodo Dragon is a type of large lizard called a Monitor lizard. It lives only in a few Indonesian islands. The Komodo dragon is the world's largest lizard, reaching a lengt…h of up to 3.15m or over ten feet, and weighing an average of 70kg, although some have been known to weigh up to 165kg, or 365 pounds. The tail of a Komodo dragon is usually as long as its body. Its sharp, jagged teeth can be as long as 1cm each, and unlike other lizards, it has a long, forked tongue which is bright yellow. The Komodo dragon has a very dangerous bite. For years it was believed that the danger of a Komodo dragon's bite was due not to venom, but to bacteria that live on its teeth. Recent research, however, has discovered that the bite of the Komodo dragon delivers a powerful venom which actually thins the blood, increasing blood flow and creating a state of shock in the victim. For more information on the research, see the link below.

Well i dont know charlie, ask your mom.
Komodo dragons are classified on the IUCN Red List as "Vulnerable". They are not yet endangered, though their numbers are diminishing. One of the main reasons fo…r their declining population is the fact that they live in areas constantly beset by natural disasters such as volcanic activity, earthquakes, floods and tsunamis. Natural disasters diminish numbers of the dragons' prey, leaving them with less food. Illegal poaching of Komodo dragons and their eggs has also resulted in fewer dragons remaining alive, while human encroachment leading to habitat destruction has resulted in less shelter for komodo dragons.n, so action is needed to save this creature. Currently, there is a programme underway of trapping komodo dragons, and micro-chipping them for research. The activities of each specimen caught can then be monitored, including hunting habits, vulnerability to predation by their own or other species (including man) and preferred shelter, all with the aim of finding a way to stop their numbers decreasing. Genetic studies of the creatures are also made, using blood that is extracted after trapping, and this is used to determine the best and healthiest dragons that would survive relocation to other Indonesian islands (such as Padar) where they once lived but are now believed to be extinct. There are komodo dragon breeding programmes all over the world, and currently about 300 komodo dragons being kept in secure captivity, partially as insurance for survival of the species. More young are also being bred and raised. On the island of Flores, there are two restricted reserves where the komodo dragon is kept in protective captivity. Obviously, government legislation to protect the komodo dragon against being hunted and killed also helps it from becoming closer to extinction.
