    Four men have now been arrested and charged with the theft of the stolen Komodo Dragon mentioned above. Sadly the Komodo Dragon himself was found dead on the bank of the River Rhone having been abandoned

    A group of 15 Spotted Pond Turtles have arrived after being seized by customs in Hong Kong - they will live in a mixed exhibit with Gharial. These are the only ones in France
