Komodo Dragon(dedicated to ChiChi6)

I have actually wanted to do this animal for a while, but haven't been asked T^T, thanks sis XD. I am going to break this into 2 sections 1 about the animal. The other about it's most dangerous weapon, it's saliva.

The Komodo Dragon is the largest lizard in the world and is a monitor lizard, or old world lizard. with a tail whip nasty enough to leave a big bruise.

fun fact- The term monitor lizard is based on an old world belief that the monitor lizards could detect the presence of crocodiles hiding in the water. If the villagers seen one avoiding the water they would to so they wouldn't get eaten.

Now lets go over their most dangerous weapon, their mouth or more specifically the bacteria it holds. They have 57 stains of harmful bacteria, I am only going to name a few, that should be more than enough to get my point about the danger of letting the bite go untreated across.

First is one that needs no explanation the name alone will let you know, Escherichia Coli or as it is better known E.Coli.

Next is Staphylococcus or as it is better known to cause in human bodies, food poisoning.

Providencia and Proteus, both are known to cause urinary tract infection.

I could spend the next hour typing the rest of the strains, but I don't feel like it so I will just say other things the bite leads to including, rapid swelling, blood clotting failure in other words you keep bleeding out from the wound, and shooting pain up to the elbow, some of these may last several hours. yeah, that's a nasty lizard with a nasty bite.
