Asked by Wiki User

A Komodo dragon is a predator at the top of its food chain, so it is not considered a food chain in itself. A food chain is a linear flow of energy from one organism to another, showing the transfer of nutrients through various levels of a community. The Komodo dragon would be a part of a food chain as a predator preying on various lower-level organisms for its food.

What does a dragon fly symbolize?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The dragon is Beowulf's final adversary in the poem, and it represents the demise of Beowulf's kingdom, the end of a golden and peaceful era for his people. The dragon guards a treasure of a long-forgotten society, foreshadowing that Beowulf's homeland will soon fall into disarray. Dragons have come to typically symbolize greed as well, but the more important point is that the dragon is Beowulf's and his kingdom's doom. Before the fight, all but one of his men desert him, showing that the allegiance holding his kingdom together is already falling apart. Although his companion slays the dragon, the implication is that Beowulf's people, the Geats, are doomed.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I guess that the biggest thing that a komodo dragon can eat is humans or goats, zebras, horses, etc. They can eat almost any living thing that are near them. So, anything that is living better watch out!

P.S. Komodo dragons don't usually eat humans, only if they're hungry enough. So don't make them mad!

What would happen if a large animal was bitten by a Komodo dragon?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is highly likely. Adult komodo dragons prey on younger dragons. Also, 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. The sharp, serrated teeth of a komodo dragon are used to open a gaping wound in its prey, enabling the venom to flow easily. This would also work on another komodo dragon.
