The Komodo dragon is the largest known species of lizard. It can grow to be 10 feet long and weigh 150 pounds. Komodo dragons carry an anticoagulant in glands located inside their mouths, which helps them “predigest” their prey before ultimately consuming it.

  • Scientific Name: Varanus komodoensis
  • Characteristics: Like all Safari wildlife models, our Komodo dragon figurine is hand crafted and professionally painted for true-to-life detail. Although Komodo dragons can pray upon animals as big as deer, they rarely attack humans.
  • Size and Color: 11 inches long and 3.75 inches tall, this model is an inch shorter than an American ruler and about as tall as a deck of cards stood upright. Komodo dragons are always slate gray, although dust and sand sometimes sticks to their bodies, making them look light brown.
  • The Hamster is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
  • Product Description

    History:

    Based on populations estimates by the IUCN, the Komodo dragon is classified as a vulnerable species. Komodo dragons are negatively affected by a handful of circumstances, including habitat loss and fragmentation as well as declining prey numbers due to habitat degradation. Even natural disasters have detrimental effects on the Komodo dragon population, because their low numbers make their populations especially fragile and volatile to change.

    • Recommended Age: 3+
    • Size in cm: 28 L x
    Komodo dragons can grow to be up to 10 feet long and weigh 154 pounds! They are the largest living species of lizard. Because they have such slow digestion, some Komodo dragons only need to eat 12 meals a year.
