Interspecies Conflict/komodo dragon vs. hippopotamus

Komodo dragons have so much bacteria that they are considered poisonous.  While a hippo may take down a dragon, if bitten, it is only a matter of time before the hippo will die.

A hippo would easily win against a komodo dragon. The thick skin, large size, heavy weight would protect the komodo dragon from biting it, and poisoning it. Hippos are very aggressive, and one bite from a hippo can even kill a 2000 lb 20 ft long nile crocodile.

No way a Hippo could bite a Komodo in Half. Even sharp knives couldnt penetrate the dragon. Also the Komodo has a strong tail that could break a Hippo's leg and the komodo could bite the hippo's leg to injure it.

Its only a myth that hippos bite crocs in half, it was just stories and myths.

Komodo also ate elephants the size of a Hippo(Stegodon) witch lived in flores. The komodo's venom and bacteria could kill every animal in the world, even whales.

Komodos werent weak and small. News said that komodos kill humans. Their maximum weight could be around 250 kg and be as long as 4 meters, they are also the smartest lizard in the world.

Hi! To all those who have asked serious questions about interspecies conflict, I announce I will be leaving AllExperts for good. Im sad about it, but I must do it. Thank you to all of you, and before I leave, I want to give you some advice; please, read good books about animals, visit them in their natural habitats, but please, DO NOT THINK THAT YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE SEEN MANY VIDEOS ON YOU TUBE! It seems, and it makes me very sad, that there is some kind of community of animal fight fans out there who care nothing about real relationships between wild animals, and only want to know who would "destroy", "crush" or "anihilate" that other animal. Perhaps it was my fault; perhaps I chose the wrong subject. Had I know that I was helping to violent thoughts about animals fights, or even helping that morbid interest on animal fights to grow, I would have never suggested this category to be created. So, I would like to apologize to all of you people who did care about animals, who did want to learn about them. To all of you, fight fans, I would like to repeat, what you see in YOU TUBE is not the real animal world, please try to get to know them better, or, if you only want to know who will kill who, please watch Celebrity Deathmatch. And, again to those who do care, please do not believe to anyone who says he/she knows about animals if his or her references are links to You Tube. Best regards to all of you Dewey D. Jorin P.S- I almost forgot; I apologize to all of you about my bad English.


Nothing teachs you more about wildlife than working with wild animals yourself.
