Keith Interviews a Dragon
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     "Thank you so much, children. And now let's meet the world's biggest lizard, the Komodo dragon!"
 
2     "Good morning, Keith. Good morning, children."
 
3     "Wow! You really are big. Are you the biggest Komodo dragon ever?"
 
4     "No, Keith. The biggest Komodo dragon on record was 10 feet 3 inches long and weighed 365 pounds. I'm just average."
 
5     "Where do you live, Mr. K.?"
 
6     "Most of us live on islands in Indonesia. We prefer to live in hot, humid, grassy lowlands or in rainforests. We are cold-blooded, so the sun feels very good."
 
7     "You have quite a tail there."
 
8     "Yes, Keith, it is quite a tail. It is as long as my body. You might like to know that I have about 60 very sharp teeth. Some of them are an inch long."
