Are komodo dragons endangered?

    Yes. While their total population numbers aren’t know, various studies estimate their numbers somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 worldwide. Since Komodo Dragons have no natural predators, it is human hunting of them that has caused their endangered status. People often hunt them to sell their parts like skin, teeth, etc.

    Komodo Dragons are endangered (though the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species only lists them as vulnerable). National Geographic claims their population is small due to the lack of reproducing females, poaching, habitat invasion by humans, and natural disasters. Komodo Dragons are an average of 10 feet long and sit at the top of the food chain in their habitat.
