The Komodo Dragon is Still the Largest Lizard on Earth

Steve Backshall of the BBC travels to Indonesia to get personal with the Komodo dragon.

There’s still some remnants of dinosaurs today and the Komodo dragon is one of the many shinning examples of those prehistoric beasts alive.

Check out this video as Steve Backshall of the BBC visits these exceptional creatures in their natural habitat in Indonesia.

As you just learned, these are the largest venomous lizards on the planet and they will stop at nothing to protect themselves.

Did you see the power of the Komodo dragon’s bite? Steve was only able to achieve a 128 PSI bite, but the Komodo dragon had one that registered 600 PSI.

Now that you know a little more about these lizards and how they live and eat you can know how to avoid getting surprised by one in the wild. Watch out for that powerful bite and the thumping force of that tail.
