The Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) is the largest lizard in the world, growing to an average length of 2-3 meters (10 feet).
It is a member of the monitor lizard family, Varanidae, and inhabits various islands in Indonesia.
Komodo dragons are carnivorous.
Although they seem to like carrion, studies show that they also hunt live prey with a stealthy approach followed by a sudden short charge, during which they can run briefly at speeds up to 20 km/h (about 13 mph).
