Look at the top examples of dragons that exist in real life.

Komodo Island Dragon, or Komodo Dragon

It is the largest lizard in the world. A Komodo lizard can reach a length of 2.5-3 m, its weight ranges from 50 to 70 kg. He looks very much like a dragon. And although the monitor lizard cannot breathe fire like this fabulous monster, it still poses a very great danger. Primarily for pigs, deer, and buffaloes. And, probably, many have heard that the bite of a monitor lizard is deadly. Scientists have found confirmation of this. In 2009, Australian scientists proved that monitor lizards have poisonous glands in their mouths. The poison produced by them dilutes the animal’s blood and does not allow it to curdle. The victim dies from blood loss.

Xenoderm Javanese

It is also called the dragon snake, Javanese snake, and tuber snake. The xenoderm looks like a dragon because the entire body of this snake is covered with several rows of scales that look more like the skin of a crocodile or lizard than the scales of a snake. Javanese xenoderms aremoisture–loving creatures, so they like to live in rice fields, which serve them both as a shelter and a source of their main food – toads and frogs. The habitats of these nocturnal reptiles are islands and countries of Southeast Asia: Java, Sumatra, Thailand, and Malaysia.

Desmoxytes Purpurosea

The maximum length of this creature reaches only 3 cm. It lives in just one place on our planet – in the Thai province of Uthaithani. The species was first described in 2007, and because of its bright pink color, it was called the “poison pink dragon”. This amazing millipede is very poisonous, it can produce prussic acid. In this way, this animal is protected from predators.

Flying Dragons

Flying dragons In fairy tales, all dragons can fly, and this dragon, which lives in the rainforests of Southeast Asia, is no exception. Thanks to the wide skin folds on the sides of the body, he can plan for a distance of more than 20 m. Males have a sac—like skin fold on the throat that extends forward – when planning a flight, it serves as a stabilizer. The scales of the body and tail of the flying dragon are “painted” to match the color of the tree bark. And the “wings”, on the contrary, have very bright colors.

The Dragonette Family

Fish of this family are widely distributed in all tropical and subtropical seas. They got their name because of their wide dorsal fins resembling dragon wings. Dragonetts live at a depth of 200-400 m, so the main background of their coloring is sand color, which helps them hide from predators. However, there is another species of dragonet, living on coral reefs, with a very bright coloring of blue and orange. If a predator attacks a fish from this family, then its skin will immediately begin to secrete a poison that smells very unpleasant, which will immediately discourage the attacker’s appetite.

Blue Dragon

Or blue angel, or Atlantic Glaucus. It is a species of gastropod mollusks found in the world’s oceans. Most often it is found on the coasts of Australia, Africa, and the USA. The blue dragon does not fly, it “crawls” on the water surface, driven by the wind. A bright appearance serves as a perfect disguise for this mollusk. The blue back hides it from birds from above, masking it underwater, and the white or silver-gray belly hides it from fish from below. Despite its harmless appearance, the blue dragon is dangerous. The skin of the mollusk is covered with poison, so it is highly not recommended to take it with your bare hands.
