Our male Juvenile Komodo Dragon are now up for adoption!

Our Komodo Dragon youngsters are named Satali, Talibo and Atal after ‘SATALIBO’, the biggest mountain on the island of Komodo.

Sadly our breeding pair of Komodo dragons (male Telu and female Mutu) have passed away but they left a legacy of no less than 24 offspring, with the other young Komodo dragons having transferred to other zoo’s around the world.  

Curu our other male along with Satali, Talibo and Atal can be seen at ‘Dragons of Komodo’.
