To mark the 37th anniversary of Indonesia’s Komodo National Park, the quiz has been created to recognise the world’s largest living lizard species. The park was set up in 1980 as a conservation site for the creatures, who have occupied the region for millions of years. Raja the Komodo Dragon at London Zoo in 2008 (Picture: Getty)
There are around 5,700 giant lizards inhabiting the volcanic islands found in the centre of the Indonesian archipelago – they exist nowhere else in the world so are of huge interest to evolutionary scientists.
The park has expanded to other native wildlife such as the Timoor deer – the main source of food for komodo Dragons – and 72 species of birds.
For those who want to take the quiz, head to the Google homepage, where you’ll find five questions on the Komodo dragon.
