Komodo dragons use venomous bites for hunting.

The formidable Komodo dragon, Earth’s largest lizard, possesses more than just size as a weapon. Their bites are infused with venom containing toxic proteins. This venom can rapidly lower a victim’s blood pressure, inducing shock and loss of consciousness. This potent biological arsenal provides Komodo dragons with a strategic advantage in hunting prey larger than themselves. The combination of size, strength, and venom makes these reptiles apex predators in their native habitat.
