This is Hudo our 15-year-old Komodo dragon.   The Komodo smells much like a snake does. It uses its long, forked tongue to sample the air, after which it touches to the roof of the mouth and makes contact with the Jacobsons organs. If the concentration present on the left tongue tip is higher than that sampled from the right, the dragon knows that the prey is approaching from the left.

The name hippopotamus comes from a Greek word meaning “river horse”.  Fiona is doing her best bucking bronco impression.

Sleeping away most of the day in the treetops, the red panda is most active at dawn and dusk.
