In order to drag it out of the water, this komodo dragon had to wear his lunch like a siege helmet.

In a recently published report, a group of scientists found that Komodo dragons actually have a suit of armor made from tiny bones under their scales.

This bony β€œchain mail” was discovered after a deceased adult specimen underwent a powerful CT scan. These tiny bones are called osteoderms and are present in many different lizards, frogs, and crocodile species.
