I can imagine they'd need one hell of an enclosure too, and a very secure one at that. Also - their food bills would be enormous!

dont go off at me i know your not asking for opinions on this but i just googled them as other than there big no naff all about them. i got size 8-10 feet. weight 150-200lbs. thats huuuuuggee. i appologise if u do, but have you space to accomodate a lizard that is going to get this big and be big enough/strong enough to move it. i know i cant pick up 150lbs and im not small.

anyway sorry for butting in on ur thread

They're also the most dangerous lizard in the world and wouldn't think twice about ripping apart and eating a human lol.. That is enough for me to wanna stay looking at them behind glass in a Zoo, and not having one at home!

These on the other hand, are gorgeous!
Im not saying Komodo's aren't.. They fascinate me, but imo are not the type of thing you could keep comfortably in the UK, unless you're a Zoo.

They aren't the hardest to tame from what I have read and the enclosure would need to be the likes of 30x30 but I think 20x20 would be plenty.

well a 20ft x20 ft is huge and i would suspect its would be around that kind of size. thats nearly as big as my house.

i think unless u have some serious space and time these guys should be left to the zoos if u want to see em
