Komodo dragons have scaly skin, massive tails, and big, flat heads, making them the heaviest lizards on the planet.
They can grow to be 9.8 feet (3 meters) long and weigh more than 154 pounds (70 kg).
Komodo dragons are carnivorous reptiles that are only found in Indonesia on four islands called Komodo, Rinca, Flores, and Gili Montang.
These big lizards dwell in hot dry climates and have existed for millions of years.
They live on the Indonesian islands in southern Asia, which are very hot tropical islands. They prefer tropical forests, but they can be found all over the islands.
Komodo Dragons’ relationship with humans.
The teeth of a Komodo dragon are said to be shark-like in appearance, full of poisonous venoms that can kill a human within hours.
Villagers who had lived alongside the world’s largest reptile for decades were unconcerned until the dragons attacked.
The news spread quickly across the smattering of tropical islands in southeastern Indonesia, where the endangered reptiles are still found in the wild:
Since 2007, two persons have been killed, a small kid and a fisherman, and others have been seriously injured after being charged without provocation.
Experts point out that Komodo dragon attacks are still uncommon. Fear is rife in the fishing villages, as are doubts about how to survive with the dragons in the future.
Villagers report that the dragons are hungry and become more aggressive toward humans as a result of their food being poached.
They are fast, strong, and dangerous, no matter how peaceful they appear while resting beneath trees and gazing out at the sea from white-sand beaches.
They can reach speeds of up to 12 miles (nearly 20 kilometers) per hour.
In the last 35 years, four individuals have been killed and at least eight have been injured.
However, given the regular stream of tourists and the 4,000 residents who live in the park, officials believe these numbers aren’t frightening.
However, it is good to know how to act to try to survive an attack by a komodo dragon.
How to survive a komodo dragon attack?
First of all, when you go to visit these islands full of these creatures, try not to venture alone.
The best choice is to go with an accredited person who will know how to react in case of an attack. Jaguar fights Komodo dragon to the death
Usually, the guides are armed and trained to deal with such an attack. Even if you have the impression that the locals are doing quite well, it’s not like that!
Believe me, it is much better to take a guide and listen to his advice. The most important tip is to stay as far away from the Komodo Dragon as possible.
The latest attack has occurred in 2017 when A 50-year-old Singapore citizen visited a nature reserve in Indonesia
did not listen to the instructions and approached a Komodo dragon in order to photograph her, but then the lizard attacked him and bit him in his left leg.
So if you want to have a wonderful vacation, stay away!
Most of the time, if you keep your distance, the dragons will not attack you. If this happens, the best solution is to run!
Keep an eye on your surroundings and avoid provoking the komodo dragon in any way!
If you find yourself suddenly standing in front of it, or you see him suddenly running towards you, run! 6 Animals that can kill a komodo dragon
Try to run in zigzag and use every obstacle that you can, the Komodo is not a bad sprinter but their heavyweight makes it hard for them to maneuver.
Climb A Tree
Climb up a tree or somewhere high and call for help if possible. That’s why it’s so important to have someone with you!
Just think what it would be like to wake up in a tree in the middle of the wilderness with a 70-kilogram dragon at the base of the tree waiting for you.
The young ones could be very fast, and if you are not in very good shape it will not be good. Also, young dragons however do climb trees.
Don’t go into the water
I also do not recommend going into the water. It is known that dragons swim quite well, and if you are not an experienced swimmer,
you may panic when you see the animal coming after you. When you spot one, all you have to do is run as fast as you can in the opposite direction.
Because the Komodo dragon is a reptile, it cannot regulate its body temperature on its own and will overheat if it runs for too long.
Humans, on the other hand, can run for great distances and our sweat effectively cools our bodies.
But let’s move on, let’s assume you’re not in the best shape and the komodo dragon catches you. What are you doing then? Try to don’t get bitten!
In case you walk through the forest of the Indonesian island when a dragon pulls its head out of the bush and grabs your foot with a wild bite, or catches you, you need to run to escape the dragon that bit you.
Your heart will start beating faster, and it will pump blood faster, and the poison will spread immediately.
Soon, you will feel weak, but you must continue to walk and seek help. That’s the most important thing! You need to find a home or someone to help you.
Otherwise, it will not end well. If you don’t find it, you’ll probably give up. You soon run out of energy and lie still.
And that’s not good, because if you faint, you’re more likely to wake up too late.
It is known that Komodo dragons have a very well-developed sense of smell, and you with an open wound will be perfect for that.
Fight and Don’t give up
Moreover, it is possible to attract other dragons. So don’t give up! Every second counts when the venom is in your blood!
So keep in mind! Prevention is much better than healing and fighting! So when you know you are in the land of Komodo Dragons, be very careful about everything!
