Virgin Dragon Update

Komodo baby IrwinMeet Irwin, one of the five baby Komodo dragons hatched at Chester Zoo last month from eggs laid by a virgin female (see my post on 24 January 2007). A CBBC Newsround competition asked children to suggest names for the hatchling Komodos. The winner chose Irwin, after Steve Irwin, the famous Australian conservationist who was killed by a stingray last year. Good choice. It suits the little fellow.
