Eye In Eye With The Dragon

Posted on October 7th, 2010, by Petra

In August the Los Angeles Zoo proudly announced the hatching of 22 Komodo dragons. While adult animals can measure up to a length of 2 to 3 metres (6.6 to 9.8 ft) and weigh in at around 70 kilograms (150 lb), the youngsters are naturally much smaller and just out of this world cute.

While most of them just hang out in little groups in their enclosure, one was much more enterprising and definitely interested in some close up shots.

Was he posing for the lead in the next dragon movie? After all, this is Los Angeles, where film stars are being discovered in the most unlikely places…

    It’s the tongue! Very expressive.

    They are fascinating reptiles. They’re so huge when adults. And aggressive.

    Aggressive or not, I’d love to pet one of the babies!
