Komodo Dragon

This dragon looks less than fierce. I would assume that it cannot breathe out fire or fly. It is a very large lizard, but like all lizards, has little facial expression to tell us whether it is dangerous or not. Actually, it is a Komodo dragon or Varanus komodoensis. They are the largest known living lizards and give us a rare glimpse as to what it must have been like during the times when there were ones a lot larger living on the earth.
