ok i cant find the post describing it but this is what i remember of komodo dragons correct me if im wrong on any of it (also this is kind of a gorey description)
if im Remembering correctly (please touch on anything if im wrong) i think? i recall watching them do the whole "lurk n lurch"/ ambush method
waiting for their prey and then using their teeth to sever the tendons/ ligaments in the animal's legs to immobilize or severely hinder them
then often going for the throat afterwards for a quick kill
IF all else fails i think the komodo dragon's venom does still come into play, but a lot of kills come on faster than that if im remembering right
(if even that, i watched them eat prey live, as long as they werent able to struggle significantly to injure the dragon(s))
(sorry that i cant give proper sources rn btw if i was more awake and aware i would,, pensive)
