Komodo Dragon

komodo-dragon-npe-blog

Did you know? Komodo dragons are one of the largest living lizards in the world. They have good vision and can see objects as far away as 985 feet, according to the Smithsonian Zoo. These scavengers have saliva laden with really deadly bacteria, and their bites containing the spit were potent enough to bring down a water buffalo!

Also, the Komodo Dragon is now regarded as venomous. The saliva is bacteria laden but is also a very complex mixture of proteins and enzymes.
