The Komodo dragon is the largest lizard in the world. It is a fast runner but also spends some time underground in tunnels that they dig in order to regulate their body temperatures. Komodo dragons are also great swimmers and some have been known to swim from one island to another when needed. These animals are active both day and night, but do most of their hunting at night. They are solitary animals with a great sense of sight and smell, and are both predator and scavenger.
Recent studies have demonstrated that these giant lizards are actually venomous! They use their strong jaws, sharp teeth, and venom to take down large prey.
