I don't think Komodo, you have to have atleast a license to own one, they are pretty dangerous to humans. But probably means, monitors, tegu's, iguanas. Frilled dragons are beautiful large lizards!

Is it really possible to keep these big lizards as pets? I guess they must be domesticated from the beginning, otherwise they are too dangerous. I would rather keep a crocodile as pet before I keep a komodo dragon.

No, but they are quite similar. Monitors are almost as large; there are a couple of sub-branches and there are two I know: one is quite gentle and the other is easily provoked and can be aggressive. They charge if disturbed and since they are so big it's quite scary

You could keep Komodos, I know a guy that keeps one but he's an animal wrangler and knows how to calm them without harming them. You would need a lot of space for a Komodo and probably tame it, but it is possible. You could keep cayman crocs, they are small but snappy but easily tamed.

I see. The resemblance between them is remarkable. I suppose that a monitor lizard is related to a Komodo Dragon.

That sounds interesting. Has he another lizard-like pets beside a Komodo dragon? as far as I know Komodo dragons are skillful predators which would eat a buffalo in a group, if they are hungry. I guess a sustenance of meat is required to keep them as pets. How much meat they are eating per day?

If I would keep a crocodile as pet, a cayman croc were my preferred choice.

Caymans are nice little crocs!

I have the impression the guy is living in a zoo full of lizards. It seems that he has a weakness for reptiles.
