Google celebrates 37th anniversary of Komodo National Park with new Doodle

Well take the Google doodle test and find out!

Originally created to provide a safe harbor for the 5,700 Komodo dragons that live there, Google says the park's wildlife inhabitants are far-ranging.

The scaly beasts are related to snakes and will eat nearly anything they find from deer, pigs, water buffalo and even humans.

This is because of 37 years of the Komodo National Park and the conservation of the Komodo dragon. The dragon is known to kill in a terrifying manner. Its waters also team with sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and thousands of fish species.

The Komodo dragon lumbered into the spotlight Monday as Google honored the giant lizards that dwell on volcanic islands in Indonesia's Komodo National Park.

Komodo dragons are the heaviest lizards on the planet weighing in at around 330lbs and up to 10 feet in length.

Google has marked the 37th anniversary of the founding of Komodo National Park in Indonesia with an interactive quiz on one of the strangest reptiles on the planet.

The site was established on March 6 1980 and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991.

The quiz, which features drawings of Komodo dragons, asks a series of true or false questions regarding their size, diet, and sense of smell. It uses 50 strains of bacteria in its saliva to poison its prey's blood. They are found on the islands of Komodi, Rinca, Flores and Gila Montang.

Earlier this month, a study into Komodo dragon blood found numerous elements that could result in better antibiotics for humans.

But a lack of egg laying females, natural disasters, poaching and humans encroaching on their habitat has caused the species to be labelled with an endangered status.
