American Alligator vs Komodo Dragon

  
  
  

Komodo Dragon fightGator fight

A great suggestion from many readers, this fight pits two of the coolest animals on Earth in battle.

The American alligator normally grows up to 12-15 ft and weigh over 1000 lbs. The Alligator has been known to take down prey as large as a Black Bear. It has the strongest bite force of any animal on Earth and is the apex predator of its habitat.

The biggest Komodo Dragons can grow up to 12 ft and weigh in at 250 lbs. Found only in remote islands of Indonesia, the dragon takes down prey up to 10 times its size, including water buffalo. The Komodo Dragon has no fear of any animal and its saliva contains a deadly mix of bacteria.

This animal fight might well come down to who gets the first bite. If the gator were able to get a clean shot at the dragon, it could snap it in half. However, it says here that the Komodo Dragon will get the first bite 9 out of 10 times, on land or in the water, letting its "venom" kill the alligator and then devouring every bit of it.

Komodo Dragon Wins

Comments

Question: how long does it take for that bacteria to kill the aligator assuming it was bitten by the Komodo? 
 
I just feel like the Komodo is agil enough to avoid a big bite from the alligator. I gotta go Komodo!!!

There's one problem, tough alligator skin and armored back. The Komodo could bite but has only one shot and if it finds the skin too tough to puncture or a bony plate, goodnight.  
 
Also, Alligator blood has strong antibiotic proteins that are currently being tested to fight superbugs in humans.

I think the Dragon's teeth (up to one inch long and serrated like a buzz saw) will be able to get through.

the alligator has a thick armored body, and it is one of the bone crushing bite in the animal kingdom, and its tail can use it as a weapon 
the komodo is agile and faster than the gator, sharp claws can use it as a weapon, and it has a deadly saliva that contains bacteria. 
I think the komodo would win

Antibacterial blood beats bacterial venom every time. Don't get it twisted.

Antibacterial blood beats bacterial venom like rednecks beat kids.

Komodo dragons rule
Posted @ Tuesday, March 31, 2009 1:36 PM by Bobcat
don't tolerate one of them..just tolerate both of them..because they are animals too..they didn't want a fight!! but humans are making plans for them to fight with each other!! try to save them from mean people who doesn't care for animals only for money and their selves..we should obey God...because i know god is sayin we should take care of the animals like taking care of ourselves!! im just concerned

Shut up you idiot, shes right.
Posted @ Friday, April 10, 2009 9:24 AM by Bobcat
oh oyu shutup yeah she is right but i have to admait that in a way both of them could win the crocodle would only win by snappin it in half and it isnt harmed by most bacteria but .......... the komodo is quick moving and has 7 soureces of bacteria on its teeth and on source can affect the aligator ones bitten and the komodo will run awayuntil the aligator is dead and eat it but i think the komodo would win
Posted @ Tuesday, April 14, 2009 2:26 PM by zack
There both pretty much the same in strength, but alligators are too fat and slow.
Posted @ Tuesday, April 14, 2009 2:32 PM by Bobcat
I had no idea that those komodo dragons were so tough! I knew their saliva was poisonous, but a water buffalo! Whoa! remind me never to go there.
Posted @ Sunday, April 19, 2009 10:16 PM by Jennifer Snyder
I think th komodo's saliva would have no effect since the alligator whole top half of its body is covered in 3-4 inch body armour and the komodo is not strong enough to flip over an 1000kg alligator

The komodo would definitely get pwned....all it takes is one clean shot by the alligator and the fights over. 
 
The alligator might die later on though from the bacteria though.

If the Komodo Dragon sees the Alligator blast out of the water towards him, he's gonna run! Seriously, I'm going with the Alligator.
Posted @ Thursday, May 14, 2009 6:23 PM by Kenny
I would have to bet on the alligator. There have been a lot of articles recently posted on the komodo's bite. The Komodo has a very weak bite, perhaps no stronger than a housecat. The key to the Komodo's bit is it's re-curved, razor-sharp teeth. It easily pierces the skin and then as it pulls it's head back, the teeth penetrate deeply and pull away flesh. It was previously thought that the deadly cocktail of bacteria in the Komodo's mouth was what caused death. Any wound from a Komodo is likely to cause toxic shock within houra and become gangrenous. The wounded animal usually survives the initial bite, only to become overcome by the infection within a matter of hours so that the dragon can track him down and devour it's prey at it's leisure. There is more to it than that though. It was recently found by biologists in Australia that it actually has venom glands in the back of it's mouth that prevent the blood from clotting and also cause the animal to go into shock. In spite of the deadly Komodo's bite, I would have to put my money on the Alligator and her is why: 
 
First of all, alligator's, while they may look sluggish, are capable of moving with lightning speed, launching up to half of their body completely out of the water to make a strike. They can also run pretty fast for short distances.  
 
When it comes to strength, alligators are incredibly powerful, not just in terms of their bite strength either. I haven't even mentioned the incredible bite force. I've seen a small (4 foot) alligator rip the plastic bumper off a a car in one bite. If an adult alligator got hold of even the biggest Komodo dragon Komodo, it would do it's deathroll. This is enough to crush bones, tear tendons and ligaments, and dismember limbs in an instant. Supposing the Komodo did actually get a bite on the Gator, It's teeth may not be able to deeply penetrate the tough skin and even if it did, because of the Alligators slow metabolism, the venom may not have much of an affect. As for the deadly cocktail of bacteria, I seriously doubt it would have any effect on the alligator. I've seen alligators that have survived horrific wounds such and survived. Alligator parks always have a few animals with limbs missing and in some cases their tails are almost completely bitten off. Because of their environment in swamps, their immune system has evolved to such an extent that they're virtually immune to infection and apparently, if they can survive the loss of a limb, they don't bleed to death very easily either. My money is on the gator, definitely.

of course, the alligator would own the komodo, the lizard's teeth cannot penetrate the gator's armor, and even if they do so, crocodilians have incredibly strong immune sistem, they're immune to most species of bacteria.
Posted @ Wednesday, June 03, 2009 12:10 AM by Gianmario
You're crazy to pick a komo dragon here. Sure - their bite kills just about anything after a few days. Days, that is. I think you really should check with the wildlife experts on this one, I mean come on. 
 
The komodo dragon is a very clumsy animal, and apart from its septic bite is probably one of the least dangerous carnivores for its size. Ever heard of island gigantism? A male adult human with a knife would stand a reasonable chance against this animal.
Posted @ Wednesday, June 03, 2009 8:33 AM by Wildlife lover
Alligators can sprint up to 15 mph (everglades guy told me on a boat tour). This perceived "quickness" advantage to the komodo is greatly lessened. This, mixed with alligator anti-bacterial blood, superior brute strength/size, and most powerful bite on the planet result in an easy win for the alligator.
Posted @ Saturday, June 06, 2009 12:42 AM by chicken quesadilla
Uhh, I'm pretty sure the gator would win here, folks. He's the advantage of weight, better adapted for water, strongest bite pound for pound in the animal kingdom and natural body armour, pretty much. Score 1 for Big Al.
Posted @ Sunday, June 07, 2009 4:54 PM by Dude
komodo dragons dont have venom... there bites kill because of toxic bacteria that live in there mouth it causes slow infections in mammmals gators arnt mammals

lol at idiots aligators r not vicious killing machines r u thinking of a salt water crocodile a thousand pounds wahahahahah salt water crocodile is the largest reptile on earth and it only gets that wieght u fools the komodo dragon all the way its a monitor lizrd highly agressive and when they bite they shake around 2 its how they eat deadly snakes. there skin though not plated scale is very loose like baggy skin and can take a deal of damage. there claws laserate. and they r canabalistc on them selfs and other reptiles.. komodo dragon for the win
Posted @ Saturday, June 20, 2009 7:58 AM by billy bob joe
Billy Bob Joe, you panzy ass redneck, you don't know shit!! 
 
 
 
Alligators can get up to 4000 pounds and Komodo Dragons can't kill anything! They're weak and useless in a fight, they're so scared of Water Buffaloes that they sneak up on them and bite and haul ass, then when their prey dies, they follow the trail and eat it! What pussies they are!!
Posted @ Thursday, June 25, 2009 4:30 PM by Michael
I meant to say Saltwater Crocodiles can get up to 4000 pounds alligators can only top 1000 punds.
Posted @ Thursday, June 25, 2009 4:32 PM by Michael
lol michael u idiot no salt water crocodile gets 4 tonnes lol thats bigger then 2 great whites max length for a salt water croc is 7 metres an 1 tonne in wieght thats it ur thinking of godzilla next of read what was stated a gators biggest prey is a black bear fucking big woop a water buffalo is much larger then a black bear go back to heaven micheal gods waiting
Posted @ Saturday, July 04, 2009 5:39 AM by billy bob joe
and a gator dosent sneak around in water like a panzy and kill prey like a wuss with a lunge when they cant b seen????? fucking irony. i think u should stfu and say touche
Posted @ Saturday, July 04, 2009 5:42 AM by billy bob joe
LOL!!!!! 
 
Both of yall are retarded, the Saltwater Crocodile can't get up to 4000 lbs, a big one weighs half as much!! lol 
 
That's how stupid michael is. 
 
 
 
And, Billy Bob Joe, 1 ton = 2000 lbs. You don't seem to understand that, so..now you know! lol
Posted @ Friday, July 10, 2009 2:32 AM by Kenny
I've noticed that Billy Bob Thornton put down 1 tonne for the Saltwater Crocodile, even that's 2,200 lbs! 
 
 
 
An American Alligator CAN weigh up to 900 or 1000 lbs, trust me, i've met one! 
 
 
 
A komodo dragon cannot take down an alligator, you have to be a moron to think otherwise! 
 
 
 
And don't call these animals cowards Michael and Billy Bob Thornton, because that just tells us that both of you are! 
 
 
 
Komodo Dragons are not going to waste their time chasing down a fucking deer, so that's why they sneak up on them Michael! 
 
 
 
And alligators only have a burst of energy, they're not going to chase an animal down miles away from their natural habitat, that's completely stupid, Billy Bob! 
 
 
 
Both of these animals tire easily. But when it comes down to combat, the alligator will fucking MURDER the dragon!!!! Just because they're scared of people doesn't make them cowards, it makes them smart!
Posted @ Tuesday, July 21, 2009 11:22 AM by Jason Henson
Alligator would win! I don't know why some of you think the alligator is so slow-I live where they do, and they are very fast-I can tell you that!! They are like aquatic battle-tanks!
Posted @ Thursday, July 23, 2009 10:21 PM by Attila
Actually, the biggest croc(diff than alligator) is more than 2000 lbs, his name is Gustav and he killed over 300 people in africa(burundi)and weighs approx.1.3 tons to learn more about this nile croc: "Capturing the Killer Croc"on dvd, you can find it on amazon.com There have been larger ones than that 7 meters(Gustav is appr 23 ft long.
Posted @ Thursday, July 23, 2009 10:29 PM by Attila
the komodo would kill the gater with 1 bite!
Posted @ Monday, August 10, 2009 2:29 PM by Savannah
what about a lucky bite? anything dies from loss of blood to the jugular lol. i did underestermate the alligator and done more research. gator would more then likely win. still a komodo dragon is no push over and a tonne for a saltwater croc is still very rare largest caught one in ausstralia was just over 5 metres and was called sweet tooth. its illegal to kill any reptile in australia unlike america so a 1000lbs gator would b a rare one too i imagine. as u do hunt them yes?
Posted @ Tuesday, August 18, 2009 8:43 AM by billy bob joe
also unless ur names doctor phil dont call any one retarded or stupid on the internet thats kinda lame i have a p.h.d is awesomeness 
 
^_^
Posted @ Tuesday, August 18, 2009 8:46 AM by billy bob joe
and im an aussie so i dont go the 2.2 lbs to a killong thing i just go the simple 2lbs=killo as its easyer to estimate a size largest salt croc i have seen was 4 metres long and just over 500 killos name was merf and likes at currumbin bird sanctury. that is y im finding it hard for an aligator to b so large as far as im aware of the largest crocodilians go saltwater then nile then aligator though the ghaveral is longer then the aligator just not as heavy 
 
Posted @ Tuesday, August 18, 2009 9:03 AM by billy bob joe
also the weight is wrong for the komodo dragon they can get 150 kgs in wieght 
 
Posted @ Thursday, August 20, 2009 2:05 AM by billy bob joe
and i dont recomend facing a komodo dragon with a knife lol id like to c u do that to a lace monitor let alone a komodo dragon
Posted @ Monday, August 24, 2009 4:53 AM by billy bob joe
The fight is a draw, the dragon would get to bite the gator but remember this saliva is the same saliva that can take days to kill a 1000 pound water buffalo the gator weights 800 lbs. The gator would rip the dragon apart before the saliva can kill it so in the end both reptiles are died. 
 
But mostly I go for the gator, it as a crushing bite force that only crocs can beat.
Posted @ Wednesday, September 09, 2009 5:13 PM by Zeroman
Depends on first bite. If the Komodo got first bite, it may still lose but win in a way. The bacteria could kill the alligator as well. I think that the alligator would probably win.
Posted @ Monday, September 14, 2009 6:11 PM by Dark_Wolfxoxo
In water, surely the alligator would just drown the kimodo? or am i wrong?
Posted @ Wednesday, September 16, 2009 5:59 AM by Manu9999
well well well a fight set in this situation is easy the komdo gets its bateria from dead animals and the gator eats the same damn thing it dosent matter who gets whoo the komodos bateria even if it effected the gator which doubt it it wont take the gator down as soon as it gets bit come on these things get bit by deadly snkaes and dont die the gator gets bit by a komodo the gator will bite back crushing the dragon and death rolling night night dragon think about it and if the dragon gets pulled in the water well that it any way cause theres going to be more than one gator i have worked at a zoo and worked with both animals and seen things with gators that makes them awsome
Posted @ Wednesday, September 16, 2009 4:11 PM by lee
This is another stupid battle. Another unfair one, like the “Bear vs. Gorilla” (victor is always bear) one, or the “Jaguar vs. Leopard” (victor is jaguar) one Komodo dragons reach a MAXIMUM of 10 feet long, where there have been records of American alligators reaching lengths of 16ft long. American alligators are more heavily built and have MUCH stronger jaws. Komodos are poor fighters and rely on their deadly bacteria infested bite to kill their prey. Alligators have jaws that can exert pressure of 2000-2500PSI. Komodos don;t have that strong of jaws. Alligators have thick armor plating, which could prevent the Komodo from giving the alligator its "famous bite". The only way the Komodo could kill the gator, is if it bit its underbelly and that will still take days for the gator to succumb to the disease. Much more time given than for a fully grown fully fledged gator to take out a Komodo dragon. A sixteen foot long gator can weigh 1,200 pounds, while a ten food dragon could only weigh at a maximum of 350-400 pounds, when fully gorged with food. Gators have been known to be apex predators of their range, having been recorded to kill black bears and Florida panthers within their range. A Komodo could succumb to a black bear with ease. Both gators and Komodos are similar in body plan, however the gator is stronger. I can't believe how retarded these fights are becoming. Eventually it will be “Lion vs. Housecat” or “Worm vs. Blue jay”.

Posted @ Thursday, October 22, 2009 10:19 AM by kris
everyone is commenting.by the way what is the areana land/water.if land dragon will bite and try to escape but gator if bite while getting a bite will win but if dragon escapes than no one will win.in water gator is fast and will win .overall gator may win but dragon never.
Posted @ Sunday, November 01, 2009 10:39 AM by arpan sarma
Both these creatures are vicious, strong, and fast, but the komodos aren't equipped for taking down gators, and the gator's antibacterial blood would would stop any bacteria. The komodo could still wound the gator well with its teeth, but by the time it could rip far enough into the gator for a kill, it would already be sliced up by the gator's jaws.
Posted @ Sunday, November 01, 2009 5:21 PM by Luke Beall
I agree that this is not a fair fight. I don't think the komodo dragon would even think of trying to attack an alligator. I think a more interesting opponent for the alligator would be an anaconda. Now, that would be a fight to the finish, maybe resulting in the death of both alligator and anaconda. I think this even happened in real life in the Everglades where they found the dead snake trying to swallow the dead alligator.
Posted @ Monday, November 23, 2009 7:14 PM by Jeremy
Update: I was wrong, it wasn't an anaconda. It was a burmese python. It's body exploded after it tried swallowing a six-foot alligator.  
 
Read all about it: http://news.mongabay.com/2005/1005-gator.html
Posted @ Monday, November 23, 2009 11:41 PM by Jeremy
This should be more about which animal will die first. Its not like the Saliva of the Komodo kills you on the spot. Damn why are the uploads so fucking stupid? I think at the end 5/10 times both animals will end up dying but most of the time the Komodo will end up dying first. So I say 7/10 times the Alligator will win. Since it is longer, much more powerful, thicker skin, better swimmer, taller legs which make it stand higher.
Posted @ Wednesday, December 02, 2009 11:47 PM by Jesse "LULZ" James
The alligator is bigger and more powerful. The dragon does not have venom. It has an infectuous bite. However, alligators and crocodiles are immune to infection. Alligator eats the Komodo dragon. The End.
Posted @ Monday, December 14, 2009 1:31 PM by Toby Ross
This is supposed to be about alligator vs dragon. However, since it was brought up. The python knows what it can and cannot swallow. The python swallowed a live alligator. The big snake would have been alright, if left alone to digest the gator. However, another alligator bit into the side of the python, causing the python to explode, releasing the now dead alligator. This was on the follow-up news.

Warning to all newcomers! I no longer participate here because I have recently learned that this is a hot hangout for gay teenagers.
Posted @ Monday, December 28, 2009 5:25 PM by Toby Ross
First of all, the webmaster isn't forcing these animals to fight; it's hypothetical, and because one needs to understand the forces involved, quite educational. IMO, of course. 
 
Next, it can take days for Komodo venom (or bacteria) to work. So even if the dragon got first (and second) bite, with the alligator getting thirds, the Komodo would be killed. However, supposedly, 48 hours later, it'd have its revenge as the gator succumbed and, according to the info I've read, be devoured by other hungry Komodo Dragons. 
 
PS Someone called gators "aquatic battle tanks" and I think that's a great description!
Posted @ Friday, January 01, 2010 12:36 PM by Mark in Iowa
The Komodo dragon does not have venom. It is bacteria. The prey animal dies from infection. However, alligators and crocodiles are immune to infection. The dragon's bite will have no effect on the alligator.

a komdo dragon could inject some mean poisnee my sister has ben bitten by one and she died so go komdo.

The alligator wins. His bite is more powerful, and the infectious bite of the dragon does him no harm.

dragon wins lol are u serouis gator is too big weighing in like 1000 lbs dragon only like 200 lbs jaws are to long and powerful with the strongest bite on the entire earth the gator will eat the dragon simple facts only thing dragon has is its spitt witch like venom with so much bactireia but other than than gator wins who ever chooses the winner on this website is a dumbass
Posted @ Monday, January 25, 2010 1:58 PM by styulz
You're kidding me, right?! Dragons do NOT have "venom", they rather have a cocktail of bacteria similar to a humans bite which is commonly known to be just as deadly. This in no way harms a gator, and the gator's jaw is more than a match for the dragon.  
 
Gator wins!

Alligator wins, its 5x as heavy and alot better armed, and a bite of 2000 psi the dragon would be finished. The dragons "venom" or bacteria will have little affect on the gator
Posted @ Wednesday, February 03, 2010 7:41 PM by mr animalia
wow think gator not croc it would not matter anyways the gator is still going to be smaller most of the time anyhow a croc would be more likly to run into a dragon and for info the nasty saliva of the dragon is still considered venom think
Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 2:44 AM by
Their saliva IS NOT VENOM. Venom is proteins. Bacteria are actual organisms, that follow all 7 processes of life. Komodo dragons do have venom, like some other lizards do, BUT IT IS NOT FATAL, and without the bacteria, the Komodo's venom cannot do anything to a large animal. Most crocodilians have been thought to be immune to most pathogens (parasitic bacteria, protists, and fungi), even non-living ones like viruses (viruses are none-living things, for people who didn’t know). The armor plating is enough to help protect the alligator from the venom. The average alligator male is about 12 feet long. The average komodo is about 8 feet long. And even at the same length, the gator is stronger. They are more compactly built to fight. Komodos wait around a dying buffalo FOR DAYS, until the pathogen bacteria, from their saliva, kills the animal. They don’t bring the actual buffalo down with physical force. They just give the buffalo one good bite, and wait for it to die, which takes days. Again; alligators are apex predators of their range. Known to kill ADULT black bears and Florida panthers. They do this with PHYSICAL force.

Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 3:39 AM by MrAlien123456
I live in Florida. Yes, that 19 foot alligator is still living. But, like Andrea the Giant, this gator is a rare individual. They normally grow to about 13 feet long if not killed by an ignorant human. Like all crocodilians, alligators are immune to infection. If one gator bites the leg off of another, even in nasty swamp water, the wound will heal without any infection.
Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 6:44 AM by Toby Ross
I wish I could get a gator as a "guard dog". :P Nah, but really, though. To keep such an animal happy every week, you're going to have to give it one or two deer carcasses per week, to keep it satisfied........ My goal "exotic" pet is the Silver fox, considered that they are being sold in the U.S. as we speak, for $5,700, vaccinated and neutered, and can be considered domestic, since they now actually bark like dogs, wag their tails when they’re happy, can use litter boxes, come in many different color variations, some have floppy ears, and some have blue eyes. Kind of rare, but ATM, there's about 100 males presently available for purchase.
Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 12:15 PM by MrAlien123456
Woops my bad; the 100 males was supposed to be 10, but I put an extra one there, on accident.
Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 12:28 PM by MrAlien123456
Gator kills with deathroll for sures., but Komodo kills if his bateria bite manages to get through. 
 
Komodos are also very good swimmers. 
But its only chance is its bacteria. 
 
Also,... 
Mr.Alien, that's fuckin terrible dude.. don't make a fox your pet.. 
I mean come on man,, 
Jesus christ, do we have to domesticate every fucking form of life on the planet??..Just so you can hug and pet it all day.. 
shit,. just leave the wild to the wild.
Posted @ Sunday, February 07, 2010 3:05 AM by Disgusted By You
Hey mate, can you please look at the silver fox website listed below. This is 50 YEARS of domestication from the red fox. The yare pretty much as domesticated as ferrets. This proves how fast we could've domesticated dogs from wolves. You can easily call them a new subspecies of red fox, because of this domestication, the same way you call the domestic dog “Canis lupus familiaris“, you can call this new fox subspecies “Vulpes vulpes domesticus“. 
 
 
 
Silver fox site: http://sibfox.com/ 
 
 
 
And even if the Komodo does manage to get the bite on the gator, it still would be most likely be immune to the pathogens in the saliva. Even if the alligator isn't immune to such a bacteria, it would take days for the bacteria to kill the gator. Much more than the amount of time needed for a gator to make mincemeat of a Komodo dragon.  
 
 
 
And as long as animals are sociable with humans IT'S FINE to domesticate them. The foxes domesticated on this site were selectively bred from the nicest red foxes. This breeding project took place in Russia for more than 50 years; and now, this project is associated with the U.S. and now, these foxes are available for purchase in the U.S.; vaccinated, neutered/spayed, and ready to find a new home. This breeding project was proof that dogs could’ve been domesticated from wolves in a much shorter time-lapse period. These foxes are now affectionate and because of selective breeding, they are used to humans, and come in beautiful color varieties. As long as an animal is willing to participate, in the association with humans, I have no negative thoughts against the practice (as long it‘s for positive purposes). And remember, these foxes are red foxes, and now, they come in black and white, and have blue eyes, instead of yellow ones. They are a completely new subspecies.

Alligator hands down. The Komodo is a fearsome predator to be sure, but you guys are glorifying it too much. Alligator by virtue of its overwhelming size and strength advantage.

Yo Mr.Alien! YOur sick man. I don't care how right you think it is to domesticate animals that were meant to be wild in the first place, you gotta problem if you absolutely need a "beautiful" fox to hug and kiss all day long..

yeah man, I agree with ralph, your taking the whole fox pet thing too far. Chill out buddy. 
Just cause somebody spent 50 years domesticating them doesn't mean the foxes asked to be domesticated. 
 
You have no right to put a claim to an animal's life.

Oh really? Before you say ANYTHING about domesticating an animal, do YOU two support the unlimited amount of children a human is allowed to have per household? Because overpopulation is certainly worse than domesticating an animal of any species. Do you eat meat? Because I have a few videos that show how the animals are treated before slaughter, and during it, as well. If an animal’s willing to participate with humans in a domestication process, then so be it. The foxes that did not care for humans were not used to breed these foxes. How do you think we domesticated our wolves? We domesticated the friendlier ones, that would stick around humans for food and shelter. Same with these foxes. What about cats, ferrets, guinea pigs, cows, chickens, horses, and hogs? Is it bad we domesticated them, too, even though they were docile enough to accept the company of humans? Now I understand, if it’s an animal, like a big cat, crocodile, or something like that; however, if it’s an animal that is more predictable, and more docile, in a human filled environment, then domesticating it is a possible option. DO you see those serval cats, and how everyone bad-talks them, as pets? Those cats were DOMESTICATED by the Ancient Egyptians, along with HYENAS. Of course, the chain of domesticated servals and hyenas died out a while ago, IN EGYPT; however, a new chain of serval cats was born in the 1800’s, in Europe, and in the early 1900’s the first serval cats were being shipped to the U.S, from Europe’s serval breeding project. This means that you are pretty much down-talking an almost FULLLY domestic animal when you refer to the breeders of serval cats in the U.S. The Silver fox project was made, to prove that humans could’ve domesticated wolves in a shorter period of time, than previously thought. They proved this BY using the FRIENDLIER foxes as the ones to breed. So EVERY silver fox you see today LOVES human interaction. Also, to the idiots who think ferrets are wild-- they aren’t (4,000 years of domestication).

Alligator wins for certain. Average gator is bigger and stronger. Also, crocodilians are immune to infection. 
 
Domesticating animals is wrong. Todays cow was once the great auroch. Our pig was once a wild boar. We humans made slaves of them. The dog was once a wolf. Out of every dog in America that has a good home, there are 20 who do not. Also, it is very wrong to hunt for so-called sport. 
 
In a nut-shell, humans suck. The sad thing is, modern religion supports this. The farmer/shepherd religions are anti-nature religions. I believe in the Great Spirit. He created an all-natural world. As it was meant to be.

On a cool day, Mr. Komodo can circle gator and pick his first bite. If he runs away and comes back the next morning and bites him again, gator might start to get an itchy rash. But on a hot day, gator isn't going to lay around and let Komodo chew on him. On land or in water, gator will sink his teeth into Komodo and drag his tail in the water. Then the death roll that nothing can survive. Gator will plant the drowned dragon in a soft patch of mud on the bottom, and chew on him for breakfast everyday for a week. Gator wins.

IT'S A REALLY TOUGH ONE.BUT AS PER MY VIEW DRAGON WOULD DEFINITELY KILL THE ALLIGATOR AS THE BACTERIA DIGEST THE MUSCLES AND IT KILLS THE PREY WITHIN FEW HOURS.ALSO DRAGON CAN FIGHT MUCH LONGER THAN ALLIGATORS.
Posted @ Saturday, November 27, 2010 11:03 AM by AMIT
The komodo would be highly unsuccessful in trying to circle the gator, gators and crocodiles alike can strike with lighting speed. Also once the gator got a hold of the komodo the gator would shred him into slices of lizard meat with relative ease. And yes the gator WOULD get a hold it is inevitable. Even if the komodo was able to puncture the gators softer underbelly, which is very unlikely, the gator would still manage to slaughter the komodo. Gators are also known for very fast bursts of land speed to pursue the komodo.
Posted @ Sunday, December 19, 2010 11:51 PM by Mike
The winner here is obviously the gator. Just too much of a size advantage. However, the komodo's jaws are a marvelous feat of engineering. 
 
While his bite force is extremely low, the way he bites allows him to be an extremely effective killer. 
 
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/04/080418-komodo-dragons.html 
 
Though known for killing prey much larger than itself, the Komodo relies on its razor-sharp teeth, strong neck muscles, and "space frame" skull to subdue its prey, according to a new study.  
 
Using computer models, researchers from Australia's University of New South Wales analyzed a Komodo specimen from the Australian Museum in Sydney.  
 
"The bite is really quite incredibly weak for such a big lizard—less than you'd expect from the average house cat," said Stephen Wroe, an author of the study, which was recently published in the Journal of Anatomy.  
 
 
 
If a Komodo actually tried to crush prey with its jaws, like crocodiles do, "it would break its own skull," he said.  
 
Despite its flimsy bite, the researchers said, the Komodo has other physical traits in its favor that make it an able predator.  
 
"What's really interesting is that it has a lightweight skull and weak jaw, but it has optimized the way the skull structure and material is arranged," Wroe said.  
 
Likening the lizard's skull to the design of a bridge, Wroe said its "space frame" structure "uses minimal amounts of material to resist forces."  
 
The computer model showed that the skull of the giant lizard varies in density.  
 
Some sections are composed of spongy bone, giving it an elasticity that, not unlike a snake's jaw, allows the Komodo's mouth to open wider. It also gives leverage to its sharp, serrated teeth.  
 
"This system appears beautifully adapted to bite and pull, so when it bites and pulls together it requires less force than if it was to bite and not pull," Wroe said.  
 
Maneuvering its shark-like teeth, flimsy skull, and strong neck muscles in concert, the Komodo dragon "uses its head like a can opener," he added.  
 
"It opens up major and traumatic wounds, and the prey dies of blood loss."  
 
It's this precise killing method, called inertia eating, that allows the lizards to take down much larger prey, including wild pigs, deer, and buffalo.  
 
"It has a more efficient way to kill larger animals than a cat does," Wroe said.  
 
The jaw architecture of the komodo dragon is superbly designed to cause blood loss.  
 
Many aligator fans here seem to be driving home a point about the gator's antibacterial blood. This is a moot point for two reasons. First, the size advantage the gator has makes it all but invulnerable in a face to face fight. No need to be boasting about how much infection protection its blood has, just remind them of the weights. Second, the komodo dragon doesn't have bacteria in its saliva. 
 
This time, instead of a Nat Geo article, I have an actual scientific study. 
 
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2690028/ 
 
Controversially, the proposition that utilization of pathogenic bacteria facilitates the prey capture has been widely accepted despite a conspicuous lack of supporting evidence for a role in predation. In contrast, recent evidence has revealed that venom is a basal characteristic of the Toxicofera reptile clade,(that's just fancy scientist talk for a specific group of reptiles) which includes the varanid lizards, suggesting a potential role of venom in prey capture by V. komodoensis that has remained unexplored. This is consistent with prey animals reported as being unusually quiet after being bitten and rapidly going into shock and the anecdotal reports of persistent bleeding in human victims after bites (including B.G.F.'s personal observations).  
 
In effect, the study found out that the komodo dragon actually has venom. The cool thing about this venom is that it actually works with the rest of the jaw, helping cause blood loss. The jaws are well designed to laccerate, and as they do, venom is secreted from venom glands beneeth the teeth. This venom is worked into the prey item's flesh as the teeth cut and dig in. The venom serves to prevent blood clotting and induce shock, increasing the lethality of the bite itself significantly. 
 
Dispite all this, however, the gator is just too large for the komodo to take. The armor also makes things more difficult, but I assume that, given enough time, the komodo could manage to work its way through the armor. But even so, the gator would have an easier time inflicting injury to the lizard than vice versa.

My first visit to site-interesting comparisons. Gator vs Lizard?? Several people brought up the story about KD killing a W/buffalo...This info came from a common video most have seen. Next time,listen & watch detail to see that it took some effort for the KD to even bite the lowly, sick looking W/Buf on the leg..it then states that it took 3 days f/ W/Buf to weaken enough to fall down so a whole group of KDs could have live lunch. The gator is bigger, stronger, just as fast, has superior armor, is viral/bacterial resistent(gators eat things that would make a buzzard puke), equally mobile on land, superior in water, just as aggressive, has a much stronger bite,& would "death roll" Mr. KD into "dragon nuggets" as soon as he latched on. I could go on but, it would'nt be fair. I know, lets find KD's cousin, the "fire breathing" dragon.. another day, another fight!!

a komodo has 60 1 inch serated 
 
teeth with bacteria that grow in 
 
it's mouth and from those dead

(i'm talking about scavenging). 
 
a alligator has skin 1/2 inch to 1 inch.that's the lenght of your pin 
 
-kie.by the way,BAY you are a 
 
moron.it would be so thick it  
 
coulden't even move.it would be too heavy 
 
and would be like it was stuck in a 
 
shell.so here is what i think would happen either komodo or all- 
 
igator could win.alot of people 
 
think alligators would win because  
 
they have the strongest biteforce. 
 
well first of all they don't have 
 
the strongest biteforce.crocodiles 
 
do.i saw it on discovery.second,so 
 
what.just because they have more  
 
biteforce they win?my vote would be 
 
they both win.let us not forget that 
 
some komodo dragons can grow 10 fee 
 
-t long:as long as some alligators. 
 
by the way,largest alligator ever 
 
caught was 28 feet long.i read it in a book.

I was really entertained today by comments by John...Starts off by saying "I read it in a book" wow, thats enough to convince me!! Next, 60-1" teeth is workable if you can find a gator to lie still while the KD chews its way through. Sorry, bud, Gators also "death roll" to break away from such bites which are quite common among male gators. I do like your skin thickness of 1/2" - 1" being about the length of a pinkie finger. Anyone out there have a pinkie finger this small.. Send a picture & it doesn't count if it's bitten off at the knuckle. John, maybe you're confusing this length with another part of your body. Guys usually go the other way. 28' ft Alligator??? I think I saw that Discovery show too.. it was about dinosaurs that lived with T-Rex, wasnt John??? Finally, you state again "you read it in a book" which must make it true. I hope you don't read Harry Potter or we'll be in trouble.

Because the Komodo Dragons venom would kill the croc over a short amount of time and the crocs antibodies would not know how to defeat the venom but if the croc gets one clean bite on the Komodo dragon before the venom sets in then its a tie but if it does not then it is a win win for Mr.Komodo ps....... komdo draogon wins 8 out of 10 times

I don't know why I came back here, but I was bored, and it appears many people are invalids and cannot comprehend that alligators and crocodiles have immunity to most bacterial and viral infections- even the AIDS virus. And WTF brought up that Komodo dragons have venom? They carry deadly bacteria. Komodo venom is just as toxic as tarantula venom- it would barely do anything. The Komod's bacteria is what most animals have to worry about but crocodilians are immune to almost all pathogenic microorganisms, including anthrax. An alligator not only has stronger jaws than the Komodo, but a 9 foot gator and a 9 foot Komodo would give the fight to the gator as gators are more heavily built and more muscular. One bite to the dragon is all it takes fro ma gator of similar size. However, most gators average larger than the average Komodo. 
 
P.S.- Not to mention how relatively weak Komodo jaws are for their size- they couldn't penetrate the durable armor scutes of the alligator. 
 
Komodo Dragon- Male- 8ft long; 150lbs 
American Alligator- Male- 11ft long; 650lbs

If the question is who will deal the killing bite first, the dragon wins, since one bite will infect the gator and kill it. If, however, the question is 'who dies first', the gator wins since after the dragon bites it, the gator still has time to bite the dragon in half.

Ok, well personally I like the komodo dragon more. I just think it is an awesome creature. Yes the komodo dragon's bite is deadly, but what you guys are not considering is how long the bacteria will need to be in the alligator to take affect. I think the komodo dragon will indeed get the first bite, but I don't think the komodo dragon's bite will instantly kill the alligator but instead will cause an infection that will ultimatly lead to the alilgators death. In the mean time while the bacteria is spreading the alligator will strike back, most likely killing the komodo dragon. In the end, they both die, its a draw.

"American Alligator vs Komodo Dragon": 
 
 
 
A Tyrannosaurus rex can defeat both the American alligator and the Komodo Dragon,  
 
but sadly that lizard is extinct. ;) 
 
 
 
But, by modern standards, I would say that a large tiger can still defeat both 
 
the alligator and the Komodo, but only if it keeps itself from being bitten by 
 
the poisonous Komodo. 
 
 
 
Another thing that can defeat the alligators and Komodos is any Transformer, but Transformers aren't

ha ha .... this one is ridiculously funny. the alligator would love this matchup as it would give him meals for a long time. lol the fight would take place in the water as the komodo swam across the river . the alligator would bite it about mid body and stuff it in the mud bank to decay before eating it. reality is reality people...

Did you take into account the extremely powerful bacteria fighting qualities of alligator blood? Also the gator would have the element of surprise as they are the masters of stalking prey for hours at a time 
In no scenario could the more powerful and more skilled predator (the alligator) lose to the Komodo dragon 
Btw the bacteria laced venom of the dragon takes at least a day or more to begin to affect prey and even longer to fully immobilize it

Posted @ Monday, October 10, 2011 4:42 PM by poop
All bets on Alligator. Thick scaled armor and an extreme weight advantage make it already more of a defensive tank. The Komodo Dragon also has thick scales, but it has a much weaker biteforce and a much smaller head. The Alligator has antibacterial blood and the komodo dragon's bite would not likely penetrate the alligator's scales anyway, unless it flipped it on it's backside which doesn't sound realistic. The Komodo dragon possesses neither the problem solving intelligence to think of that nor the means to do it.
Posted @ Sunday, November 06, 2011 12:03 AM by Noc
Even if the komodo dragon got a few bites into the alligator, it wouldn't disable the massive reptile. The gator, I'm sure, would be able to whip around and catch it in its jaws. One good bite from the alligator should break the dragon and even if it didn't, its deadly roll likely would. 
 
Another consideration is the strikes of their tails. While I would not want to be whipped by a komodo dragon, I think an alligator's tail would be far more devastating.

To be honest, this isn't a fair match-up for the Komodo Lizard(Dragon? yeah! a Lilliput one!!) 
 
Lol! It takes days before the bacteria(Shock inducing toxin, to be precise) kills or even immobolizes a cow/deer- It is simply not sufficient for immobilizin, let alone killing an Alligator, instantly. The Lizard can only hope to await the Alligator's death, with most of it inside the Gator's stomach-

I think the Alligator owns the Dragon. The gator is much bigger, stronger, and has one of if not the strongest bite pressures of all animals. He has very tough scales as well which protects him from the dragon's bite. Not to mention the alligator can batter the dragon with his tail. I don't know how strong a dragon's tail strikes are but the alligators would probably be more damaging. 
 
I favor the Gator 9.5/10

This is one of the most insane things I've ever read. You guys picking the komodo dragon are nuts.  
 
They have a very weak bite force for 1 and alligators have extremely strong hide. 
 
Secondly you're acting like their venom kills things in seconds. That's simply not the case. It takes about 5-10 komodos several WEEKS of biting and following a water buffalo before it is killed. This isn't one bite and then the buffalo is dead in minutes. 
 
Seriously, this website is a joke for even considering this as an even matchup. One of the most absurd things I've ever read.

crocodile's have the most powerful bite force not alligators crocadiles have 5,000 lb and alligators have 2,000 lb... But I still go with an alligator unless it gets bitten then draw because both end up dieing
Posted @ Saturday, June 09, 2012 3:22 PM by Myself
The alligator wouldn't die though, even if the komodo somehow managed to pierce its skin. 
 
Animals die from the infection caused by komodo bites. Crocodilians have an unbelievable immune system, the best of any animal. 
 
It's virtually impossible for an alligator to get an infection, their immune systems are that good. 
 
There is NO WAY a komodo could kill an alligator, no way at all. It's just about impossible.
Posted @ Monday, June 11, 2012 3:32 AM by Wilson
Komodos DO actually have venom. Recent research has proved this. 
They also have several dozen deadly strains of bacteria in their saliva.  
So either way, their bite is not a good thing. 
 
It is unknown what species out there are large enough to survive the venom and have the ability to not be affected by the bacteria.  
 
Komodos avoid contact and confrontations with Salt Water Crocs. But these crocs are much bigger and more powerful than an American Alligator.  
 
But I agree with most, gotta go with the Alligator since he's 4x the size of the Komodo.  
Even if the Komodo's bite eventually could kill the Alligator, the Komodo still dies first.  
Posted @ Wednesday, August 15, 2012 6:30 PM by VK
Hey, VK.  
 
They have venom but the venom is not very strong. It's not like cobra venom or something that can be deadly, it just acts to weaken the prey over a long period. 
 
The way they kill large animals such as water buffalo is by weakening them over several days/weeks with venom and bacteria that causes them to get infections. An alligator has one of the best immune systems in the animal kingdom. Even if the komodo somehow manages to get through their hide then it's virtually impossible for the alligator to get an infection. Seriously, their immune systems are ridiculous. 
 
There's no way a komodo bite could kill an alligator, it's just not possible.

1st, regardless of size difference it actually is a close call. The mouth full of killing bacteria is a jungle jim hype with no real meaning. A human has more dangerious bacteria in its mouth than a dragon. The alligator is much larger but less aggressive [nothing like it's cousin the croc. Also,'gaters' do not have the most powerful bite in the animal kingdome - If forced to fight and I forced to choose I'd have to go with the 'Gator'. It's 5 times faster and more meanly aggressive when forced to be...and in time would kill the sluggish dragon. {oh, this is not an opinion....it is the finl word.

It takes a day or two for the Komodo's toxic bacteria to take their toll so the alligator would kill the dragon and then the alligator would die two days later. Alligator wins the fight with a more powerful bite.
Posted @ Monday, May 27, 2013 2:19 AM by DarthYoda
I'm with sophie, animals never want to kill each other, but this is not nature. It's science. We're trying to know who beat who. 

Alligator is fast too, it can run almost as the fastest human(20km/h) while K.dragons can't.  
The Komodo dragons have venom, yes, but that doesn't work with a much bigger reptile what has antibiotic blood. 
Alligators can reach the 18 ft, and komodo dragons 11. 
It's not fair for the dragon, its rival is just too big, fast and strong. 
The dragon's bite may be lethal for the venom, but alligators can reach more than a ton with 1 bite. 

Alligator wins

Alligators also have lots of bacteria in there mouths and frequently fight one another, sometimes removing entire limbs, and yet the alligators don't get infections. So how the hell is a lizard going to hurt one of them at all?

the alligator's tough hide, will more than likely deflect a bite from a dragon. The komodo's "venom" will not be able to make it into the gator's blood stream, unless it bites the gator multiple times in the same place, but by the time it got that first bite, the gator has already bit the dragons back killing it.

well, the komodo can kill and its teeth can penetrate the alligators skin. I have to admit that even if the komodo is my favorite animal, the alligator can win easily if it bites first. that is IF it bites first. the Komodo is more agressive and will probably strike and bite. then the alligator, if fast enough, can beat the s*** out of the dragon with a bite. if you want to yell at me privatly, my email is boltbutt989@gmail.com. please no spam or annoying cyberbullying.

Gator hands down, would own the dragon, make babies with it, then we'd have hybrid gators with raging bacteria in their saliva. God help us!

Everyone of you who voted for the Komodo raise your hand if you live where the Alligator does not live. This is one of the most lopsided fights on the whole list. The reason gators weigh so much is because of the thick leather covering and a dense mass of muscles plus the gator and the croc are two animals that have the longest head to body ratio. I live in La. in between Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas on the edge of the swamp. The Bull gators have been recorded at 19 feet long before the coonass and cajun people put gators on the dinner table. We had one caught at 19'7" in our local manchac swamp back in the 1890's. We get many that are 15 and 16 feet long. the last thing you need to understand is the girth of a bull gator changes drastically at 11 or 12 feet. It grows wide like a boat. And also gators have the same bacteria infested saliva which is very affective against mammals with a high metabolism. Bacterial infections are not so potent against reptilian low metabolic physiology.
