The controversy that accompanied the event voting no effect on the intensive efforts to continue to maintain its sustainability. Komodo is the largest lizard species in the world who live on the island of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Gili Dasami in Nusa Tenggara. By local people, dragons are often called ora.

Komodo has an average length of 2-3 m. Large size is associated with symptoms of island gigantism, the tendency for body meraksasanya certain animals that live on small islands. The cause is due to the absence of mammalian carnivores on the island where dragons live and the rate of metabolism is small.
