They are protected since they are endangered. People have hunted them for meat and caused them to become endangered. Currently, the government of india and southeast asian countries is protecting this lizard.

Komodo dragons are fierce predators. To defend themselves they usetheir tails, claws, and teeth through which they inject a deadlyvenom.
they have been saved by people and broght to a zooo
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.
scientist are taking specific genes out ofKomodo Dragons and combining them to man make komodo dragons.
Not Kill the Komodo Dragon!!!
By pooping and peeing
they defend themselves in many ways by using their saliva.
it protects itself by using its unnatural size to scare the enemy or he might bite them or jump on them with its size the mouth of the dragon is very nast and you can catch a …diese fromit
they will bite their opponent, as they breed bacteria in their mouths! THIS IS NOT A LIE I PROMISE YOU, YOU CAN GOOGLE IT IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME!
Their bites are poisonous. Deadly poisonous.
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.
it is a endangered animal
They are the the 8th most endangered animal with only 40 pregnant females per year.
