September 25, 2011 1 Comment »

Phoenix, Realwonderoftheworld.com – The Phoenix Zoo is welcoming eight new residents, (24/9). The baby Komodo Dragons are on loan from the Los Angeles Zoo.

The four males and four females hatched this August. The babies weight only about five ounces each, just a fraction of the size of the zoo’s adult Komodo dragons.

15-year-old “Gaia” weighs 75 pounds. Her brother “Ivan”weighs in at a hefty 117 pounds!

You can see the babies at the zoo starting this Saturday. They’ll be on display through next spring.
