Tentang Komodo

Komodo atau yang dalam bahasa latin disebut varanus komodoensis adalah spesies kadal terbesar di dunia yang hidup di pulau Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, dan Gili Dasami di Nusa Tenggara. Biawak ini oleh penduduk asli pulau Komodo juga disebut dengan nama setempat ora.
Termasuk anggota famili biawak Varanidae dan klad Toxicofera, komodo merupakan kadal terbesar di dunia dengan rata-rata panjang 2 – 3 m. Ukurannya yang besar ini berhubungan dengan gejala gigantisme pulau yakni kecenderungan meraksasanya tubuh hewan-hewan tertentu yang hidup di pulau kecil terkait dengan tidak adanya mamalia karnivora di pulau tempat hidup komodo, dan laju metabolisme komodo yang kecil. Karena besar tubuhnya, kadal ini menduduki posisi predator puncak yang mendominasi ekosistem tempatnya hidup.

Komodo dragon ditemukan oleh peneliti barat tahun 1910. Tubuhnya yang besar dan reputasinya yang mengerikan membuat mereka populer di kebun binatang. Habitat komodo di alam bebas telah menyusut akibat aktivitas manusia dan karenanya IUCN memasukkan komodo sebagai spesies yang rentan terhadap kepunahan. Biawak besar ini kini dilindungi di bawah peraturan pemerintah Indonesia dan sebuah taman nasional, yaitu Taman Nasional Komodo, didirikan untuk melindungi mereka.

Anatomi dan Morfologi

Di alam bebas, komodo dewasa biasanya memiliki massa sekitar 70 kilogram, namun komodo yang dipelihara di penangkaran sering memiliki bobot tubuh yang lebih besar. Spesimen liar terbesar yang pernah ada memiliki panjang sebesar 3.13 meter dan berat sekitar 166 kilogram, termasuk berat makanan yang belum dicerna di dalam perutnya. Meski komodo tercatat sebagai kadal terbesar yang masih hidup, namun bukan yang terpanjang. Reputasi ini dipegang oleh biawak Papua (Varanus salvadorii). Komodo memiliki ekor yang sama panjang dengan tubuhnya, dan sekitar 60 buah gigi yang bergerigi tajam sepanjang sekitar 2.5 cm, yang kerap diganti. Air liur komodo sering kali bercampur sedikit darah karena giginya hampir seluruhnya dilapisi jaringan gingiva dan jaringan ini tercabik selama makan. Kondisi ini menciptakan lingkungan pertumbuhan yang ideal untuk bakteri mematikan yang hidup di mulut mereka. Komodo memiliki lidah yang panjang, berwarna kuning dan bercabang. Komodo jantan lebih besar daripada komodo betina, dengan warna kulit dari abu-abu gelap sampai merah batu bata, sementara komodo betina lebih berwarna hijau buah zaitun, dan memiliki potongan kecil kuning pada tenggorokannya. Komodo muda lebih berwarna, dengan warna kuning, hijau dan putih pada latar belakang hitam.

Fisiologi
Komodo Dragon tak memiliki indera pendengaran, meski memiliki lubang telinga. Biawak ini mampu melihat hingga sejauh 300 m, namun karena retinanya hanya memiliki sel kerucut, hewan ini agaknya tak begitu baik melihat di kegelapan malam. Komodo mampu membedakan warna namun tidak seberapa mampu membedakan obyek yang tak bergerak. Komodo menggunakan lidahnya untuk mendeteksi rasa dan mencium stimuli, seperti reptil lainnya, dengan indera vomeronasal memanfaatkan organ Jacobson, suatu kemampuan yang dapat membantu navigasi pada saat gelap. Dengan bantuan angin dan kebiasaannya menelengkan kepalanya ke kanan dan ke kiri ketika berjalan, komodo dragon dapat mendeteksi keberadaan daging bangkai sejauh 4—9.5 kilometer. Lubang hidung komodo bukan merupakan alat penciuman yang baik karena mereka tidak memiliki sekat rongga badan. Hewan ini tidak memiliki indra perasa di lidahnya, hanya ada sedikit ujung-ujung saraf perasa di bagian belakang tenggorokan.

Sisik-sisik komodo, beberapa di antaranya diperkuat dengan tulang, memiliki sensor yang terhubung dengan saraf yang memfasilitasi rangsang sentuhan. Sisik-sisik di sekitar telinga, bibir, dagu dan tapak kaki memiliki tiga sensor rangsangan atau lebih.

Komodo dragon pernah dianggap tuli ketika penelitian mendapatkan bahwa bisikan, suara yang meningkat dan teriakan ternyata tidak mengakibatkan agitasi (gangguan) pada komodo liar. Hal ini terbantah kemudian ketika karyawan Kebun Binatang London ZSL, Joan Proctor melatih biawak untuk keluar makan dengan suaranya, bahkan juga ketika ia tidak terlihat oleh si biawak.

Ekologi, Perilaku dan Cara Hidup

Komodo secara alami hanya ditemui di Indonesia, di pulau Komodo, Flores dan Rinca dan beberapa pulau lainnya di Nusa Tenggara. Hidup di padang rumput kering terbuka, sabana dan hutan tropis pada ketinggian rendah, biawak ini menyukai tempat panas dan kering ini. Mereka aktif pada siang hari, walaupun kadang-kadang aktif juga pada malam hari. Komodo adalah binatang yang penyendiri, berkumpul bersama hanya pada saat makan dan berkembang biak. Reptil besar ini dapat berlari cepat hingga 20 kilometer per jam pada jarak yang pendek; berenang dengan sangat baik dan mampu menyelam sedalam 4.5 meter; serta pandai memanjat pohon menggunakan cakar mereka yang kuat. Untuk menangkap mangsa yang berada di luar jangkauannya, komodo dapat berdiri dengan kaki belakangnya dan menggunakan ekornya sebagai penunjang. Dengan bertambahnya umur, komodo lebih menggunakan cakarnya sebagai senjata, karena ukuran tubuhnya yang besar menyulitkannya memanjat pohon.
Untuk tempat berlindung, komodo menggali lubang selebar 1–3 meter dengan tungkai depan dan cakarnya yang kuat. Karena besar tubuhnya dan kebiasaan tidur di dalam lubang, komodo dapat menjaga panas tubuhnya selama malam hari dan mengurangi waktu berjemur pada pagi selanjutnya. Komodo dragon umumnya berburu pada siang hingga sore hari, tetapi tetap berteduh selama bagian hari yang terpanas. Tempat-tempat sembunyi komodo ini biasanya berada di daerah gumuk atau perbukitan dengan semilir angin laut, terbuka dari vegetasi, dan di sana-sini berserak kotoran hewan penghuninya. Tempat ini umumnya juga merupakan lokasi yang strategis untuk menyergap rusa.

Perilaku Makan

Komodo dragon adalah hewan karnivora. Walaupun mereka kebanyakan makan daging bangkai, penelitian menunjukkan bahwa mereka juga berburu mangsa hidup dengan cara mengendap-endap diikuti dengan serangan tiba-tiba terhadap korbannya. Ketika mangsa itu tiba di dekat tempat sembunyi komodo, hewan ini segera menyerangnya pada sisi bawah tubuh atau tenggorokan. Komodo dapat menemukan mangsanya dengan menggunakan penciumannya yang tajam, yang dapat menemukan binatang mati atau sekarat pada jarak hingga 9,5 kilometer.
