A Canadian First – Rare Komodo Dragon Born At Toronto Zoo!

On Wednesday, August 27th, a tiny, brightly
marked reptile emerged from his egg and became the first Komodo dragon ever
hatched in Canada. The 184 gm, 47 cm long baby had been nurtured in the Zoo's
Animal Health Centre incubator for the 240 day hatching period. The sex, as
yet unknown, will be determined by blood tests. While a total of 95 Komodo
dragons representing 7 zoos have been successfully hatched in the United
States, this is Canada's first.
