In the afternoon, more than 200 saw the zoo's Komodo dragon dine on horse shank.
Charlotte Ellis, 13, of McComb, Ohio, said the Komodo, which is nearly 7 feet long and 140 pounds, couldn't get the meat without some help from a trainer.
"He couldn't get hold of it in his mouth," she said. "So someone used a stick to help him."
"Oh man, did you see the size of its mouth?" asked Terry Vasquez, 11, of East Toledo. "I want to see him eat again."
