The zoo also recently got new Komodo Dragons. The dragons kill their prey by biting it. The bite then becomes infected and the dragon will follow the prey around until it dies. Then they will eat it. This guy was huge. Hope he doesn't get out!
I really wanted to see the elephants and was excited to see that this fellow was hungry and was eating some straw. The whole crowd gasped when he raised up his trunk to get some straw. He was pretty cool.
The only thing missing from this zoo is a hippopotamus. I want one for Christmas (right?!).
