Fun facts:

  • Komodo dragons are the largest lizards in the world (males can grow up to 10 feet in length)
  • They can run up to 11 mph in short bursts.
  • They are strong swimmers – often seen miles from shore.
  • They are immune to their own toxic bacteria.
  • Komodo dragons are the only lizards that have killed and eaten humans.

STEM Challenge: Where in the world do Komono Dragons live naturally? First correct answer will win an iTwixie BLUE t-shirt!
