This article is related to a series of Fact Checking challenges posted on Hacktoria. This article is specific for Fact Checking 8.

The challenge is about the komodo dragons that either can eat their own 20% body weight in a single feeding session or otherwise.

The screenshot of the challenge is given below:

Let’s try to solve this challenge.

First let’s see what info we can get from the image.

Keywords:    Komodo Dragon, Body weight, One feeding session.

This is enough info to start the investigation. Let’s enter the question on a search engine and analyze the results.

In the above searched result it is clearly shown in highlighted areas that the percentage of eating their body weight is not restricted to 20% but they can eat up to 80% of their body weight.

So the information given in the above challenge of 20% is false.

Here is the result.

Here the challenge is completed. Kindly share it if you like. Thank you. See you in the next challenge.
