There was exciting news from BIOPARC in March 2015 when the Komodo dragons started to mate for the first time. Under the care, supervision and protection of the staff of BIOPARC Reo and Sayang began the mating process. This is very important as these reptiles are in danger of extinction and they are here in Fuengirola as part of a protection programme for creatures in danger. The two adults are the only two Komodo dragons in Andalucía and are very popular among the visitors to BIOPARC. Everybody is now hoping for a successful pregnancy.
Note:The Komodo dragon, also known as the Komodo monitor, is a large species of lizard found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar.
