Rare lizards born in Dutch zoo

Chinese crocodile lizard

Translated from Rotterdam zoo in the Netherlands:


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.
