Only a year after the opening of the new habitat in Bioparc, Indo-Pacific, visitors can enjoy the matings of this couple of saurios (biggest in the world) in the amazing recreation of their enclosure. It will be an intense and short relationship, because once the female ends the zeal they will be appart, as happens in nature.
First time Reo (the 10-yeear-old male of Komodo Dragon in Bioparc) and Sayang (the 8-year-old female) were in direct contact, the herpetology and veterinary team of Bioparc Fuengirola held their breath, excited and expectant at what they were about to witness. Gone was one month of gradual approximations (in reptiles is scarce what is known as courtship), during which caregivers played an important role as ‘matchmaker’, noting each reaction of the future partner. After saving the few steps that separated them, the only Komodo dragons living in Andalusia were melted in a tranquil embrace turned out to be a prelude to intercourse that lasted hours and visitors can watch as they are to the public eye.
