V živalskem vrtu v Španiji se je skotilo pet mladičev komodoškega varana. To je prva uspešna vzreja te ogrožene vrste v Španiji v zadnjem desetletju.

“This is a huge achievement for all of us,” Milagros Roberto, head of the Herpetology section at the Bioparc Fuengirola zoo south of Spain, and self-described “mother of the dragons”, said on Tuesday.

13-letna deklica po imenu Ora je bila njihova rojstna mati in je avgusta znesla 12 jajčec. Pet od ducata jajc je bilo izbranih in umetno inkubiranih sedem mesecev.

Robledo stated that hatchlings were a “hopeful future”, adding that it was a difficult task.

Čeprav so mladiči manjši od limone in veliko krajši od škatle za čevlje, bodo sčasoma zrasli na skoraj tri metre (10 čevljev). Lahko bi dosegli tudi 70 kilogramov (150 lbs) teže, z ostrimi zobmi in strupenim ugrizom.

These apex predators, which are native to four islands in Indonesia, were added to the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) “Red List” in 2021. This is because only 1,500 species remain in habitats threatened by climate change.

The parents of the baby dragons were mated last June 24, when Spaniards celebrated St John’s Day. Juanito was the name given to Juanito, in honor of the date at which Juanito was born.

Juanito has two siblings: Fenix, named after the egg that survived damage during incubation and Drakaris. Drakaris is a reference George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series “A Song of Ice and Fire” is a hit.

Robledo je izjavil, da se novorojeni komodoški varani v naravi nagibajo k selitvi na drevesa in ne potrebujejo materine ali očetove oskrbe. V ujetništvu jih hranijo v ločenih terarijih, da lahko veterinarji spremljajo njihovo rast in jih lahko ponovno združijo z javnostjo.
