NEWS - Komodo Dragons to London Zoo

The BBC are among many that have reported that London Zoo is beginning a breeding program for the Komodo Dragons, the largest lizards in the world.
Experts estimate only around 500 breeding females remain in the dragons' natural habitat in Indonesia.
Here is the Zoo's own page on the arrival of the Dragons. Sir David Attenborough opened the exhibit on July 12th. I HEARTILY recommend getting hold of Zoo Quest For A Dragon. I have both the book and audio version and its a great story. All of Attenborough's audio books are a pleasure to listen to, and in the absence of the "Last Chance To See" radio series, it's nice to be able to enjoy such a similar trip.
