How big are Komodo Dragons?

Today's Google doodle is an interactive quiz about Komodo Dragons. The first question is: "True or False: Komodo Dragons are the largest lizards on the planet." I figured it was the anaconda so I clicked false, but apparently that was incorrect.

Now, far be it from me to argue with Google, but I compared stats and:

             Komodo Dragon               Anaconda

Max size:       3m                       8.8m
Weight:       150lbs                     550lbs
It seems clear to me that Anaconda > Komodo Dragon. So why does Google insist on the opposite?
