Six Komodo dragon eggs hatched for the first time in the Bronx Zoo, much to the delight of environmentalists
Experts are warning about the extinction of monitor lizards, sometimes known as Komodo dragons.
However, the wonderful occurrence that occurred at the Bronx Zoo made environmentalists pleased – six Komodo were delivered at the start of winter. The IUCN Red List-listed species was given a chance to be preserved.
Six juvenile Komodo monitor lizards hatched in the Bronx Zoo in early December.
Newborn lizards have the potential to be a bright spot in the species’ future.
The Komodo dragon may weigh over 150 pounds and grow to be over 10 feet long.
People can be harmed by reptile bites because they are poisonous. Predators, on the other hand, are notorious gluttons.
Monitor lizards have the ability to absorb up to 80% of their own weight at once.
Indonesia is home to a variety of species. Only 350 of the world’s 1200 individuals can breed now, posing a threat to the whole species.
Monitor lizards may also be cannibals, forcing them to live in different cages.
Climate change poses a hazard to animals; global warming and increasing sea levels might affect monitor lizards.
The Bronx Zoo asked visitors and YouTube viewers to remember that animals need to be protected and restored. This can be accomplished by lowering pollutant levels.
“Komodo lizards are among the cutest creatures on the earth. And these hatchlings will be the species’ future. They’ll be terrific ambassadors for their wild counterparts, creating awareness of conservation concerns,” said Don Boyer, curator of herpetology at the University of Florida.
