Do komodo dragons protect their young?
Komodo dragons do not protect their young. Once the eggs are laid, that is it as far as parental involvement is concerned. The eggs incubate for around 8 months, and once the young are born, they scramble up trees where they are safer from their cannibalistic elders and other predators.

Komodo dragons are fierce predators. To defend themselves they usetheir tails, claws, and teeth through which they inject a deadlyvenom.
Some of the large ones do, yes. The mother protects the eggs, but after they are hatched, they are on their own. Some of the little ones roll around in fecal matter so tha…t they don't smell like food, which protects them from the larger dragons.

Komodo dragons neither care for, nor protect their young. Once the eggs are laid, that is it as far as parental involvement is concerned. The eggs incubate for around 8 months…, and once the young are born, they scramble up trees where they are safer from their cannibalistic elders and other predators.
they will bite their opponent, as they breed bacteria in their mouths! THIS IS NOT A LIE I PROMISE YOU, YOU CAN GOOGLE IT IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME!

nobody does, the mother lays the egg and then leves it and when the babies hatch there on there own. which is sad but they can do it.
