Chinese crocodile lizard

Translated from Rotterdam zoo in the Netherlands:

28-10-2009

Recently, in Blijdorp zoo, two Chinese crocodile lizards have been born. After some of those special reptiles were born in 1987 and 1989, at last, after twenty years, there is success! … The people can see the Chinese crocodile lizards in the Rivièrahal. …

Chinese crocodile lizards are rare, both in the wild [China and Vietnam] and in zoos. … At the moment, in 10 European zoos, just 30 animals live (including six adult lizards plus the two babies in Blijdorp). Births are rare.
