Komodo dragon training - level 2

Komodo dragon training - level 2

03-10-2014 15:00

This news is from a zoo in the USA. Zookeepers are training a Komodo dragon to come to a target they show to it. The 14-year-old lizard always gets something good after he comes.

The zoo says that this lets them move the dragon to different areas without having to sedate him.

The Komodo dragon also has a camera fixed onto his back. The video lets zookeepers see the world through the animal’s eyes.

Difficult words: target (an object someone or something focuses on), lizard (an animal which is like a snake but it has four legs), sedate (to make somebody or someone sleep by giving him or her a drug).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
