Komodon (コモドン, Komodon) is a Fanged Wyvern.

Physiology

Komodon has thick, brown scaly skin that is covered in small osteoderms. The osteoderms on its back are larger than the rest of its body, resembling those of a crocodile. Its forelimbs have large, curved claws while its hind legs have smaller claws. It has a long, whip-like tail with four pairs of large spikes at the tip, similar to a Stegosaurus. It also has a long, yellow, deeply forked tongue

Abilities

Komodon's main weapons are its large, sharp, curved claws. These claws are ideal for burrowing, climbing up trees, or easily tearing through flesh. Komodon also possess a venomous bite, thanks to special organs in their jaws that produce toxic proteins. Their tails are also very powerful and are used as whips to stun and knock down prey.

  • Family: Komodon

Habitat Range

Komodon inhabits the Dunes, both Deserts, and the Everwood of the Old World. In the New World they live in the Sandy Plains.

Ecological Niche

These wyverns mostly dominate that ecosystems in which they reside. Komodon hunt and ambush prey including Aptonoth, Rhenoplos, Delex, Jaggi, Jaggia, Genprey, Cephalos, and Apceros. Lesser predatory monsters such as Desert Seltas, Great Jaggi, Gendrome, Volvidon, and Daimyo Hermitaur and its Subspecies. Half of their diet also consists of carrion. They will even cannibalize younger, vulnerable Komodon. Despite being such a ferocious predator, it has to deal with other powerful monsters such as Seregios, Nibelsnarf, Desert Seltas Queen, Rajang, Deviljho, Tigerstripe Zamtrios, and Elder Dragons like Kushala Daora and Teostra. Diablos, Black Diablos, and Rust Duramboros may also attack Komodon should they draw near their territories. However, with its durable scaly hide, razor sharp claws, and deadly venomous saliva, these wyverns can and will send these monsters fleeing.

Biological Adaptions

Komodon scales are reinforced with numerous osteoderms that function as a sort of natural chain-mail. This provides the monster with a tough armored hide. Its powerful forelimbs and claws are used primarily for eating, climbing, and fighting. There tails are about as long as their bodies and are used mostly for support when the monster stands upright to scout the surrounding area when looking for prey. They use their tongues to detect, taste, and smell stimuli. Komodons have been observed to use their strong tails to knock down and stun both prey and predators. Komodon saliva is often described as copious and tinged with blood as 60 frequently replaced, serrated teeth are almost completely covered by gingival tissue that is naturally lacerated during feeding. This creates an ideal culture for the bacteria that live within its mouth. The saliva of Komodon is also said to be venomous as it possesses two glands in the lower jaw that secrete several different toxic proteins.

Behavior

Komodon are solitary wyverns, only coming together to eat or breed. They have very slow metabolisms, able to go long periods of time without food. Young Komodons are vulnerable and therefore dwell in trees, safe from predators and cannibalistic adults. It is most active in the day, although it exhibits some nocturnal activity. The wyverns hunt in the afternoon, but stay in the shade during the hottest part of the day. They serve as strategic locations from which to ambush prey. Because of its large size and habit of sleeping in burrows, it is able to conserve body heat throughout the night and minimize its basking period the morning after. These special resting places, usually located on ridges with significant shading, are marked with droppings and are cleared of vegetation.
