For the first time in 55 years, the Bronx Zoo has some komodo dragons in residence, 3 of them in fact.
They are all from the same family: 2 sisters called Rose and Ivy and brother Stubby have arrived.
And they were all born in the Los Angeles Zoo, part of a conservation strategy to preserve the fast dwindling species.
They are native to Indonesia, but now only 2,500 are alive in their natural habitat.
They are the biggest lizards in existence and can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh up to 150 lbs. The video is great giving you a very good view of them. They’re soon going to have heaps of adoring fans watching their every move.
They are meat eaters, chowing down on deer, carrion and birds and live up to 30 years. Welcome Rose, Ivey and Stubby, we’re very pleased to have you with us.
