Have you ever seen a lizard? They’re more common in warm climates or rural areas than in colder places or cities.
Lizards that tend to live in gardens are usually just a couple of inches big, but there are some lizards in certain places in the world that can grow to be up to ten feet long and about 200 pounds! These lizards are called “Komodo Dragons,” and they usually live in different parts of Indonesia. And don’t worry, in spite of their name, Komodo Dragons don’t breathe fire like the dragons you read about in fairytales!
