Dragons Hatch in Washington, DC

On November 11th, four little dragonlings hatched at the Smithsonian National Zoo. Little is known about the Chameleon Forest Dragon, except that they are not actually chameleons (and there's no such thing as real dragons of course...  sorry if we got your hopes up). 

Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, Chameleon Forest Dragons are a brilliant green at birth and then change to a darker green or brown in adulthood to camouflage the lizards in their treetop homes.
