They look like dragons. Armed with sharp teeth, tearing claws and a whip-like tail, these fearsome creatures are not only powerful, they?re also smart. Sounds like these cunning hunters should be a large-brained mammal, but these creatures are reptiles, members of a family that evolved when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. They are the largest lizards still walking the planet, the monitor lizards: the Lizard Kings. Ranging in size from the 3-metre long Komodo Dragon to the 20-cm short Pygmy Monitor, this huge scale range within a single genus, roughly the difference in body mass between an elephant and a mouse, is unmatched by any other group of terrestrial animals. Australia is the ?Land of the Lizards?. Half of all known monitor species live here. Yet finding them is no easy task. Natural loners, and always on guard, they sense anything or anybody from hundreds of metres away. 'Lizard Kings? is from the makers of the multi-award winning ?Cuttlefish ? The Brainy Bunch?.
