The Shark Reef Aquarium welcomed two male juvenile Komodo dragons to its exhibit Friday.
The two dragons came from the Praha Zoological Garden in the Czech Republic. There are less than 5,000 Komodo dragons surviving in the wild today.
The new reptiles will join the male adult dragon currently housed at the aquarium; however, the animals will rotate being shown individually because they can be deadly to one another if kept in the same exhibit.
The dragons arrived in time for Endangered Species Day, a day created by Congress in 2006 to educate the public about disappearing animals.
The Shark Reef Aquarium is an accredited member of the Association of Zoo and Aquariums and has pledged to cooperatively manage, conserve and protect endangered species.
