PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A Komodo dragon, the world’s largest lizard, is now living at Roger Williams Park Zoo.
The zoo in Providence unveiled the young female Komodo dragon to the public on Friday.
Zoo officials say this is the first Komodo dragon to live at any zoo in the New England area. It came from a zoo in West Virginia and will be 4 years old in August.
Komodo dragons are considered vulnerable to extinction. They are found in the wild on several eastern Indonesian islands.
They can grow to 3 meters (10 feet) or more in length.
