The Komodo dragon occurs only on Komodo and its few smaller outlying islands north of Australia. The current population of Komodo dragons seems relatively stable at about 5,000 animals, yet scientists are concerned that only 350 of them are breeding females. This may be a normal sex ratio; little is known about the species. The dragon’s limited distribution makes them highly susceptible to natural or human-caused events, such as storms, fire, or disease. The primary threats to the dragon’s survival include illegal hunting and loss of habitat to human settlement.
