You'll be amazed at these living dragons!

This exciting new display of animal exhibits features giant ectotherms – reptiles that use their environments to control their body temperatures.

Dragon World features large acrylic panels including some with underwater viewing to provide visitors with an up-close look at these amazing animals.

Dragon World is home to "Jaws" - the only saltwater crocodile in Arizona.  Saltwater crocodiles from Australia and Southeast Asia are the largest and one of the most fearsome varieties of crocodilian in the world.  At 10 feet long, Jaws has the potential to double his size since “Salties” can weigh over 1 ton and grow to over 22 feet long.
