Re: Some Female Lizards in the Wild

Komodo dragons are pretty comfortable attacking prey such as pigs or deer and ripping them to pieces. The much larger Water buffalo will sometimes escape and will instinctively run into the water and die of sepsis, because the water is dirty not because of bacteria from the Komodo dragon's mouth(observation of which in the 70's started this myth). They do have venom glands and this venom can hinder coagulation but no dirty mouths.
