Did you know a Komodo dragon is about 1/4 the size of a T-Rex? Did you know that Komodo dragon saliva is used in many antibiotics? Did you know that a female Komodo dragon can reproduce with no contact from a male? This amazing book explains why Komodos are important and special. The information is more than interesting– it is riveting. The real life photographs are as remarkable as the text. This book was so INCREDIBLE that I want all my librarian friends to know that I think YOU SHOULD ALL GET IT FOR YOUR LIBRARY!!!!!
