Tuka

komodo2

Tuka arrived at Taronga Zoo from Ragunan Zoo in Jakarta in 1991, as a presidential gift from Indonesia. At 2.75 metres and 70 kilograms, Tuka held the title of being the largest and perhaps the best-known lizard in Australia. At the time of his death in 2015, 33 year old Tuka was the world’s oldest Komodo Dragon in human care.
