The Komodo Dragon is a large reptile, adults can reach 2-3 meters. The species is indigenous to the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores and Gili Motang in Indonesia. Inhabiting these islands the species are isolated from any potential predators that may kill and feed upon them. That is not to say nothing eats the Komodo Dragon. A dead one may be have its flesh consumed by a bird of prey.

Additional information

Adult Komodo dragons do not have any natural enemies, but they are cannibalistic and will raid unguarded Komodo dragon nests to eat the eggs and will eat hatchling and juvenile Komodos. One source estimates that 10% of the adult diet consists of juvenile Komodos. The hatchlings could be consumed by any predator, including their mother.

Crocodiles and tigers are possible predators. A python will kill a small komodo dragon, but never a large adult.

A Komodo Dragon does not have poison. It has festering bacteria in it's saliva from the dead carcasses it eats. This bacteria acts like poison and is deadly.
