    The Komodo dragon hunts deer. If they become extinct, the deer population will increase. They play the role of many mammalian predators, such as leopards, tigers and wolves. The volcanic islands they inhabit lack mammalian predators. Predators tend to keep herbivore populations in check, and at the same time eliminating the sick and the weak. Without predators, herbivore populations, especially on islands, can grow uncontrollably and that could cause the vegetation to be over browsed and over grazed, which in turn can cause a crash in the herbivore population.

    You need to know that the Komodo is the apex predator in its environment. Now, what effect does removing the apex predator have on the environment (what does the Komodo eat)? Now, go finish your homework ;)
