KOMODO DRAGONS - London Zoo Update

In this report from Wood and Vale 24 we have news that the Komodo Dragon enclosure is going to be modified, and that a hunt is on for a new female companion for Raja.
Komodo dragons, storks and ostriches can all live happily in London Zoo after Westminster Council approved changes to the Komodo Dragon Building opened last summer.
[...]
Last Thursday the council's planning applications sub-committee granted the green roof retrospective approval on condition that zoo staff regularly water it to prevent the grass from drying out.

Raja, the male Komodo dragon who has been living in the enclosure alone since last July, could soon be breathing a fiery sigh of relief, as plans are underway to find him a female companion.
You may remember that Raja's previous companion Nina died in a fall last year.

And here's the original post on the "eco-roof".
