“The Komodo is a predator that preys on everything from birds to deer. Getting bitten by a Komodo dragon is both painful and dangerous due to the numerous septic pathogens found in their saliva, as opposed to the numerous septic pathogens found in my ex-wife's, which only result in temporary paralysis and not sweet merciful death.”
— Survival Guide
The Komodo Dragon is one of the many animals on the Rook Islands chain and also one of the many hostile animals. It can be found in bamboo cages at camps, just like tigers and dogs. Komodo Dragons have a distinctive 'hiss' sound and are quite fast moving and difficult to spot in undergrowth. Like dogs, they will try to grab one of Jason's limbs while attacking. They can take a large amount of automatic fire before dropping, however shotguns prove to be the most effective against them.
In some outposts Komodo Dragons can be found in cages. Due to their resilience and aggressive nature, they may take down multiple enemies before they die.
There are two colour schemes for Komodo dragons. The most common are brown-grey while some others are brown-green. There are no differences other than the colour scheme.
During a Path of the Hunter quest, you will need to kill a Blood Komodo dragon with a Recurve Bow. The Blood Komodo dragon has a very distinct red colouring around its face due to a defect that causes its saliva to run red, and can take more damage than a regular Komodo Dragon.
