Reptilandia - Komodo Dragon
"Langka," Central America's first Komodo dragon, is an Indonesian word meaning "rare." Langka was born September 20th, 2004 at a reptile breeding park in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain as part of an international breeding program. She is a descendant of Sobat and Friendty, the first Komodo dragons brought to the United States, a state gift from Indonesia to the Ronald Reagan administration in 1988. Her mother was one of the first babies born at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. in 1995. Her father is from Gembira Loka Zoo in Yogakarta, Indonesia and is now 12 years old. Komodo dragons (Varanus komodoensis) are endemic to five islands in southeast Indonesia, including the island of Flores. Komodo dragons are very smart, and learn quick. With frequent interaction captive dragons can become very tame. Unlike their wild cousins, captive Komodo dragons do not develop the deadly toxic bacteria in their saliva which they are so famous for. Langka is learning her name and quickly becoming socialized to her keepers and the public. Though she is now only a little over a meter long, she will grow to be one of the largest terrestrial lizards to walk the earth.
