Facts about the butaan

Postby Skeletor Rinpoche » Tue Jan 23, 2007 10:18 pm

What are the basic facts about the butaan?-- i know that they feed on fruits high up in trees but what about reproductive behaviors, life span, natural enemies, etc., and any websites you might be able to fight on the subject

Not that much is known about them so any info would be appreciated.

I know they can grow up to 7 feet in length, and are close relatives of the Komodo Dragon.

The live in the canopies of Polillo Island, Phillippeans. Favorite food source of the Butaan is the redish-orange fruit of the Pandanas palm trees.

Animal planet did a special on these reptiles, also the source of my information.
