scientist are taking specific genes out ofKomodo Dragons andcombining them to man make komodo dragons.
They are protected since they are endangered. People have huntedthem for meat and caused them to become endangered. Currently, thegovernment of india and southeast asian count…ries is protectingthis lizard.
By pooping and peeing
they defend themselves in many ways by using their saliva.

Komodo dragons are classified onthe IUCN Red List as "Vulnerable". They are not yet endangered,though their numbers are diminishing. One of the main reasons for their declini…ng population is the factthat they live in areas constantly beset by natural disasters suchas volcanic activity, earthquakes, floods and tsunamis. Naturaldisasters diminish numbers of the dragons' prey, leaving them withless food. Illegal poaching of Komodo dragons and their eggs hasalso resulted in fewer dragons remaining alive, while humanencroachment leading to habitat destruction has resulted in lessshelter for komodo dragons.n, so action is needed to save thiscreature. Currently, there is a programmeunderway of trapping komodo dragons, and micro-chipping them forresearch. The activities of each specimen caught can then bemonitored, including hunting habits, vulnerability to predation bytheir own or other species (including man) and preferred shelter,all with the aim of finding a way to stop their numbersdecreasing. Genetic studies of the creaturesare also made, using blood that is extracted after trapping, andthis is used to determine the best and healthiest dragons thatwould survive relocation to other Indonesian islands (such asPadar) where they once lived but are now believed to beextinct. There are komodo dragon breedingprogrammes all over the world, and currently about 300 komododragons being kept in secure captivity, partially as insurance forsurvival of the species. More young are also being bred and raised.On the island of Flores, there are two restricted reserves wherethe komodo dragon is kept in protective captivity. Obviously, government legislationto protect the komodo dragon against being hunted and killed alsohelps it from becoming closer to extinction.
