“The Jungle Dragons of Udawalawe”
Remember how “Danareys Tagarian” flew over “King’s Landing” on the mighty dragon – Drogon burning the city to the ground in the famous GOT series? The roar, the fire, the screams…
What if we say that we have them,“dragons”, living in Sri Lanka?
Well, certainly it will be an exaggeration since our dragons are miniature versions with some major modifications, lol!
They certainly don’t fly and don’t breathe fire but trust me when I say that they have the attitude and a big dragon heart to make up for it ……
Our lizard, the ‘the Jungle Dragon of Sri Lanka’, was spotted by one of our naturalists at the Big Game Camp premises walking through the trees – not flying (that’s a shame, I know) – at Udawalawe one morning while his mate was having a nice breakfast on a termite mound.
