This is a very informational and accurate reference to the rare Komodo dragon. It provides very concise explanations of the habits, diet, homes, techniques, lifestyles, and body parts of the Komodo dragon. This book will definitely be entertaining and educational yet also influential to readers of absolutely all ages!
