Transcript of Komodo Dragons

Komodo Dragons
By: Alex Jarrett and Tristen Whited
Geographical location-Australia and Indonesia
Abiotic Factors are dirt, rocks, and more.

Biotic Factors are Komodo dragons, and carrion.
Biome: Grassland
Tertiary Consumer
Niche: The Komodo Dragon cleans up dead animal carcasses off the ground by eating the animal. Mutualism is the symbolic relationship. The Komodo Dragon gets to eat, and it cleans up the environment for another animal to live in that area. However, if nobody is going to live in that area, then the sybolic relationship is commensalism in that case.
Length: 8 feet long
Average weight for adult males and females is around 175, give or take.
Lizard Family
Sharp teeth
Replaces teeth
Wide mouth
Decomposing bacteria in it's mouth
Poisonous saliva
Population- 4,000-5,000
Endangered species rank: Vulnerable
15-30 eggs laid every September
Females lay fertilized eggs that hatch into all females

Females lay unfertilized eggs that hatch into all males
Poached for their skins
Komodo Dragons can mate at 3-5 years old
Factors that would effect the Komodo Dragon the most would be clean up control on dying animals, and carrion
If Komodo Dragons were extinct, then there would be many more dead animals lying around in the grassland area, and there would be many more secondary consumers. More secondary consumers would mean less primary consumers, and more producers. This, would make the ecosystem unbalanced.
Evidence: Komodo Dragons are Tertiary Consumers, and eat mostly carrion.
Why we chose this animal: Tristen and Alex couldn't decide what to pick, so Alex told himself he would agree with the next animal Tristen said. That animal, was the Komodo Dragon.
