A Komodo in Bloomington

The Nine Mile Komodo

I ran into a old work friend the other day. During our catching up, I mentioned The Dragon Keeper and he smiled and told me there was, in fact, a Komodo dragon in Bloomington. He’d seen one during a hike along Nine Mile Creek, which feeds into the Minnesota River just West of where the Zoo of America might stand. Yesterday he stopped by my office and gave me this photo. Here, for all my blog friends to enjoy, is proof of the predator lurking in the narrow band of woods above Nine Mile Creek. Thanks, David Wee, for sharing this amazing photograph!
