Chester Zoo's female Komodo Dragon Flora walks through her enclosure at the zoo in Chester, northern England, December 15, 2006. Flora, a pregnant Komodo dragon living in a British zoo, is expecting eight babies. All of the eggs she is hatching were fertilised without the help of a male partner because Flora has never mated, or even mixed, with a male dragon. "Nobody in their wildest dreams expected this. But you have a female dragon on her own. She produces a clutch of eggs and those eggs turn out to be fertile. It is nature finding a way," Kevin Buley, of the Chester Zoo in England, said in an interview. He said the incubating eggs could hatch around Christmas. Picture taken December 15, 2006.
