ᴛᴇʀʀɪғʏing Moment Komodo Dragon Swallowing The Whole Wild Boar Just In A Few Seconds

Komodo dragons are large lizards with stout limbs, strong and agile necks, and long tails. They have forked, golden tongues. Juveniles may have a more colorful color and pattern than adults, which have prominent, big scales that are nearly uniform in color.

The Komodo dragon can devour enormous portions of ᴍᴇᴀᴛ with amazing speed thanks to its powerful jaw and throat muscles. The lower jaw opens extraordinarily wide thanks to several movable joints, including the intramandibular hinge. An adult may readily take up to 80% of their own body weight in a single meal thanks to the stomach’s ability to grow, which most likely explains some exaggerated stories of enormous weights in captive people. Komodos have the ability to vomit their stomach contents when in danger to reduce their size to flee.

The average weight of Komodo dragons is around 154 pounds (70 kilograms), however the largest confirmed specimen was 10.3 feet (3.13 meters) in length and weighed 366 pounds (166 kilograms). Males often develop larger, heavier bodies than females.

Almost every form of ᴍᴇᴀᴛ is consumed by komodo dragons, which scavenge for ᴅᴇᴀᴅ animals or stalk prey ranging in size from tiny mice to massive water buffalo. Young consume mostly insects, tiny lizards, and birds, as well as snakes. After five years, if they survive, they switch to larger food like rodents, monkeys, goats, wild boars, and deer (the most popular meal). These reptiles are cannibalistic and tertiary predators at the top of their food chain.
