They didn't dance for you? How disappointing!

pet owners have never had access to komodo dragons......as far as i know alot of them in the US are gifts from the Indonesian government to various zoos in the US or decendents of such animals....its possible to get your hands on about any other monitor lizard(though some are very expensive) but komodos have never been in private collections in the US as far as i know.....water monitors and croc monitors are fairly easyy to get your hands on and get pretty darn big and the uninformed may confuse them with komodos

You or the media must be thinking about iguanas. They have been released and reproducing in fl.
If you'e right and they are komodo's I'll be headed down there to catch one.
Actually the only Komodo Dragons in Florida are in the Miami Metrozoo, The Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, and at Busch Gardens also in Tampa. There is a problem with Nile Monitors in Central and South Florida (along with iguanas and other things) which is why as of Jan. 1, 2008 there is a whole list of reptiles that you can no longer purchase without a state permit ($100/yr I believe) and without having a microchip inserted. Animal control sets up traps for the monitors, but as far as I know they gave up on the iguanas and nothing organized is going on with the pythons in the Everglades. As a side note the Marine Toads are starting to be everywhere also. Hopefully your states won't be invaded by exotics or at least the residents aren't stupid enough to open the door and throw out the unwanted pets.
