Komodo dragons would easily be considered a bodybuilder among lizards. Its muscles are what gives a komodo dragon its large, menacing persona, with muscles stretching along to its tail. Komodo's use muscles to move its bones around and walk along the ground. Their size also serves a defensible purpose, giving it strength and pushing up its rough skin. The muscles in a komodo dragon's tail create, essentially, a large, heavy, scaly sledgehammer that also contributes to its intimidation factor.
