On August 8, 2010 the first of 22 Komodo dragons hatched at the L.A. Zoo. Over the course of the next 11 days, 21 additional Komodos hatched.
Lima, the Zoo’s female Komodo dragon, laid 23 eggs back in January so hatching 22 was a huge success!. Fewer than 10 zoos in North America have been able to breed Komodos; this marks the L.A. Zoo’s first success at breeding them.
