KOMODO DRAGON: Up to 50 years
These large dinosaur-like lizards are the dominant predators of their habitat on Indonesia’s Lesser Sunda Islands. When fully grown, a Komodo dragon can reach up to 10 feet in length and weigh more than 300 pounds. In the wild, the animal averages a lifespan of about 30 years, but can live even longer if it doesn’t fall victim to poaching or disease.
