Dragons Hatch!

Egg Hatching and Baby Komodo Dragon in Hand (2007)And here's the Nature news you've all been waiting for: virgin births of Komodo dragons at Chester Zoo in the UK. Altogether now: Ahhhhhh! Cute though these little chaps are, they grow up to become fearsome predators capable of killing humans and even bigger prey. Bit late for Christmas, but never mind. Virgin mum Flora is blasé about the whole thing. I've enhanced these photos to bring out the detail. To see the originals, click the title link for the Chester Zoo website.
