Todays reptile is the Fiji Crested Iguana. This species of iguana is critically endangered due to fires, storms, and agricultural developments in the northwestern islands of Fiji. This species is restricted to the dry forests of the island, being unable to live anywhere else. Fiji Crested Iguanas are herbivores, which means that they eat only plants, leaves, fruits, and flowers of trees and shrubs. This type of iguana is large, long stocky and is easily distinguished by the three narrow white stripes along its back.
This species is very colourful. Hopefully the wont become extinct, they really are wonderful!
The Komodo dragon is a large species of lizard found in the Indonesian islands. It is the largest living species of lizard found in the world. The reason Komodo dragons grow to be this large (6.6 to 8 ft) is because on the islands they live on, there are no other carnivores. These bad boys can see up to 300 metres (980ft) away! That's ridiculous. Komodo dragons eat mostly carrion. They can swallow goats in 15-20 minutes. These buggers can have up to 73 different strains of bacteria in their mouth, which almost all are deadly to humans. How they are unaffected by them is still a mystery.
Today's reptile is the legendary king cobra. The king cobra is the worlds largest venomous snake, and can grow up to as long as 18.5 feet. The king cobra is a fierce reptile, ready to defend its territory at any moment. The king cobra has a deadly venom, and could kill a human with a single bite. King cobras can have a skin color of olive, tan, or black. The male is larger and thicker then the female. The average lifespan of the king cobra is 20 years. The average king cobra lives throughout South and Southeast Asia, but is not common. It lives in dense forest areas. Here are some pictures.
Don't mess with these things, they'll destroy you.
