Want to hug a dragon? Well, now you can. At long last, Grandpa Dragon has found a home, at the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand.
Here are a couple shots of his arrival:
After he was transported from his previous location, Grandpa had to have his two halves sealed properly. Here he is waiting for the “original recipe” to make him whole. Not very dignified, the poor chap.
Now, here he is, good as new, ready to greet visitors to the zoo. He won’t bite. Except for crumpets, maybe.
A hearty congratulations and kudos to Kim and Warren Beaton, for sharing their magnificent masterpiece with the world.
You can also say “hi” to Grandpa online, and he’ll respond! Click here for Grandpa’s Facebook page.
