People with Komodo Dragon totems hold ancient wisdom. That means they move fast but carefully. They observe their surroundings and quickly make decisions.

Although most of their decisions are based on instincts, they turned out to be right as their instincts depend on ancient knowledge.

What is special about Komodo Dragon?

Komodo Dragons are the largest species of lizard. They are apex predators, meaning Komodo Dragons are at the top of their food chain.

Komodo Dragons are essential in the ecosystem because they are born survivors. These animals have been surviving on earth for millions of years.

They have gone through difficult situations, and they are still with us. Komodo Dragons have developed themselves to survive this long, making them unique.

What are Komodo Dragons scared of?

Where does the Komodo Dragon live?

Lieutenant van Steyn van Hensbroek of the Dutch colonial administration heard about the “land crocodile” rumor in 1910. Then the animal was first documented as the Komodo Dragon.

Komodo Dragon lives in five southern islands in Indonesia. These islands are Komodo, Rinca, Gili Montang, Gili Dasami, and the island of Flores. 

The first four islands are part of Komodo National Park.

How did Komodo Dragons get their name?

Komodo Dragons are also known as “Komodo Monitor” and “Komodo Island Monitor.” Their name is a reflection of their Dragon-like appearance.

Earlier, there was a rumor that Dragon-like creatures lived on the Komodo Island of Indonesia. From there, the Komodo Dragons got their name.

Why are Komodo Dragons becoming extinct?

Komodo Dragons are endangered due to the impact of climate change. It is predicted that, over the next 45 years, more than 30% of the Komodo Dragons will be extinct from the Komodo National Park.

Another reason Komodo Dragons become extinct is their unique ability to reproduce without males. Female Komodo Dragons have ZW chromosomes that allow them to be pregnant without mating any male Komodo Dragons.

They do it when no male Komodo Dragons are nearby. However, this process gives birth to only male Komodo Dragons. It causes a lack of female species, leading to less birth of Komodo Dragons every year.

Komodo Dragon’s personality is mainly solitary. They maintain and stay on their territory and defend it when they feel threatened.

Komodo Dragons are fast and aggressive. Although attacks on humans are rare, I have heard about some incidents where Komodo Dragons have attacked people.

Komodo Dragon’s saliva is poisonous, and it makes them dangerous. They can kill other animals with the venom they deliver through their sharp teeth.

Komodo Dragon mythology

China has a lot of stories about their mythical creature, the Dragon. Although the Komodo Dragon is a real animal, Indonesia has some stories about this animal too.

Empu Najo and his wife Lea lived on Komodo Island a long time ago. One day, Lea became pregnant. Later, she died giving birth to twins. Interestingly, the son was human, and the daughter was a lizard. The son was named Si Gerong, and the daughter, Orah. 

They grew up together, but villagers weren’t happy about the giant lizard living among them. 

One day, Orah left for the forest and never returned. Gerong then became an adult as time passed and forgot about his sister. 

He was an excellent hunter. One day he hunted a deer, but a massive lizard came in the middle. 

Gerong was ready to hunt down the lizard with his spear, and suddenly a woman appeared.

It was Lea, Gerong’s mother. She told him that it was her sister. 

Gerong looked closely and recognized Orah. Then Orah went back to the forest and Gerong to the village. Since then, the villagers have treated Komodo Dragons with respect.
