Komodo Dragon

Komodo Dragon yawning.

The Komodo Dragon is the world's largest lizard. They eat buffalo, Wild Boar, monkeys, deer, and even their own young. Stangely, though, in 2 zoos in London, 2 Komodo Dragons, named Flora and Sungai, laid eggs without mates. This process is called parthenogenesis. Some species of Whiptail Lizards and the Flowerpot Snake do the same thing. However, these two are all female animals. Komodo Dragons may lay eggs on their own only if there are no male Komodo Dragons living in the area. So far, Flora and Sungai laid eggs that turned out to be all males. In the wild, this would be a great adaptation in a guy-free area.
