Expedition Spotlight - Finding the Komodo Dragon The World's Largest Lizard

The famed Komodo dragon, which reaches up to 150 lbs and 10 feet in length, can be found roaming the island’s trails amongst the company of vibrant tropical birds twittering in the trees, or lounging near crystalline shores during the dry season.
