Komodo dragon with a huge wide open pink mouth, Komodo Island, Indonesia. The Komodo dragons have special venom glands in their mouths that inject the venom into its prey when the dragon bites and tears the flesh. This prevents blood from clotting and the prey eventually dies from blood loss and a drop in blood pressure, plus likely infection from bacteria in the dragon's mouth and surroundings.

Wow! The depths of a dragon's throat; a place I'm sure many animals on the island have nightmares about entering.

Great image! also great info! The latest study casts serious doubt on the prevalence of super dangerous bacteria as a contributor, finding only normal reptile bacteria present.

[] Thanks a lot, Ed! Yes, my research into the subject also suggests that the bacteria play a secondary role to the venom.
