Omaha, NE- A Komodo Dragon is now on display at the Henry Doorly Zoo's Cat Complex after outgrowing his home at the desert dome.
The six-foot-lizard is the giant of the lizard world and could grow up to 10 feet long. It was born in captivity, but others like him come from Indonesia.
He may look calm, but in the wild he could hunt down a deer. The large, venomous lizard was hatched at the San Antonio Zoo in 2007. It was raised at the Houston Zoo before being transferred to Omaha in November.
