Total Badasses: Komodo Dragons

Look at this beautiful animal. Look at how regal he is. He is truly king of all the lizards.

Living on only a few select islands in Indonesia, Komodos grow to over three metres in length, with their size being attributed to "island gigantism". Because they are the only carnivore in their ecosystem, they dominate the foodchain. Heck yes!

These dudes eat goats, pigs, other mammals, and yes, sometimes even humans. All that was apparently left of a German tourist in 1988 was his bloodstained glasses. Don't mess with the komodos, bro.
