        It's part of their new Forests of the World display.
        Friends of the zoo got a preview Thursday night.
       The display will feature the Komodo Dragons, snakes, a parrot, and a sloth!
Zoo workers say getting the Komodos ready for their new homes was a challenging but fun process.
        "It's been a little bit of a learning curve.  It's a very large...very quick animal so you have to be very cautious when your working with him but he's very nice," said handler Andy Von Handrof.
        The two Komodo Dragons at the zoo came from Prauge through the Species Survival Plan and will be open to the public in a few weeks.
