KOMODO DRAGONS - Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center

Here's WVEC.com with news of Viriginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center's celebrations of its 20 year anniversary. New exhibits will include a Komodo Dragon enclosure.
Officials were showing off a whole new global awareness on Tuesday. Four new areas are in the works. One will be on the Komodo Dragon Islands of Indonesia, with real Komodo Dragons.

Another will be Malaysian peat swamps with Tosmistoma, a type of crocodile.

“He will be here on exhibit, but people will see him in a natural type habitat," said Lynn Clements, the center’s executive director.

The third will be a Red Sea with coral displays, explained Mark Swingle with the research and conversation division.
