Komodo Dragon is known as the largest land reptile ever seen, this animal is an endemic animal. Endemic animal means this animal only lives in one place. This animal lives in small island named Pulau Komodo, this island located between Flores and Sumbawa Island, Indonesia.

Komodo Dragon is a carnivorous animal, this animal has an unique tongue that branched into two at it's tongue point, this branched tongue are used for "taste" it's prey. This animal make it's nest underground.

Komodo Dragon is an unique animal, not only it's tongue, it's reproduction methodes are unic too. A Komodo Dragon has two methodes for it's reproduction proccess, one is the fertilisation method that need a male Komodo Dragon, and the other one is The Partogenesis method. The partogenesis method allows a female Komodo Dragon to breeds it's babies egg without help from a male Komodo for do fertilisation. This facts was found when some researcher found a female komodo dragon that breeds some egg, some of the egg are hacthed.

For some researcher, Komodo Dragon was known as the relative of the dinosaur. This fact was found from a dinosaur fossil called "Mussaurus" that revealed some similarity with Komodo Dragon.

Some researcher were made confused by this facts, they ask to theirselves "Is it right the Komodo Dragon is the relatives of the dinosaur? If the answer is right, How does the Komodo Dragon Survive from an extinction proccess that has make the dinosaur extinct around 65 million years ago?". There's just one thing that we know.
