Mandalay Bay Welcomes Deadly Komodo Dragon to Shark Reef Aquarium

May 1, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Komodo DragonLooks like the Vegas Strip has decided to import the deadliest lizard in the world. This fearsome predator's got 60 dagger-like teeth, deadly saliva (just one bite is enough to kill its prey), and razor-sharp claws. Indigenous to the southeast islands of Indonesia, the Komodo Dragon is a threatened population, with only 5,000 creatures worldwide. Starting June 20, you can check out the Komodo Dragon at Mandalay Bay's Shark Reef Aquarium, the 90,560-square-foot aquarium that's the only one in North America devoted to predators.
