Komodo Dragon

The newest addition to the Phoenix Zoo is the Komodo dragon from the islands of Indonesia. He's a big fellow.

He doesn't even need to deserve my respect. Guess I'd stay away from him!

I have a phobia about little lizards but this guy is really cool!

Heather said...

We will have to go and check him out - thanks!

Yikes! I have not been to the zoo in ages. I need to go and visit.

Looks like he's soaking up the sunshine. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Impressive fellow. I've never seen one in person before.

Komodo Dragons are fascinating! We have two in Lisbon. Their bite is extremelly dangerous... Do you know that Sharon Stone's husband almost died of an infection? He was on a private tour in some Zoo and wanted to have a closer look so he went inside the Dragon's area... you can imagine the rest of the story!

This guy makes the iguanas that we see frequently in Costa Rica look mild, which they are.
