    Wherever it is, I'll stay away from it.
    That would be advisable, yes. But in your case, there's not much to worry about. You see, they don't generally travel to the USA (although you may find them at a local zoo)...

    Indeed, it's a Komodo dragon. Kudos!

    Not actual fire, but they do possess two venomous glands in their mouths, they have a vicious bite, they have very strong and sharp claws, they can run at speeds up to 20 km/h (12 mph), they can stand on their hind legs, they can climb trees, and they're very intelligent ─ they can count up to six and they can identify individuals.

    They mainly eat carrion ─ which they can smell from over 9 km (~ 5 miles) away ─ but they do also stalk and attack live prey up to the size of a water buffalo, and they're quite aggressive in the wild. So you better not get too close to them.

    Stand on hind feet and climb trees? Yikes.

    Interesting about the counting. How was that determined, I wonder?

    I'm not sure. It was mentioned in a referenced book about monitor lizards. But ample specialized intelligence/cognition tests do exist. For instance, bees and octopuses have also already been established as being able to count.

    That's not replying with quotes. That is making your post unnecessarily unreadable by literally copy/pasting user interface elements into your post.
