Komodo Dragon

This is a rare sight to see outside a zoo!  The baby Komodo Dragon retreats to a tree as soon as it hatches to hide from predators, including adult Komodo Dragons.  There it remains feeding on lizards and insects for around 3 years until it is sufficiently grown to avoid danger.  We spotted this youngster peeping out from its hiding place in Komodo National Park, Indonesia.
