MIAMI -- Lions and tigers and bears, oh, my! Lions and tigers and -- Komodo dragons, oh, what?Komodo dragons. There they are, the largest, most powerful lizards on earth, frolicking, if you can believe it, right there in the Falcon Batchelor Komodo Dragon Encounter in the Miami Metrozoo.Travelers to this Florida city usually think sun and fun on the beach. But sometimes the beach gets too hot, the body too red and the routine too dull.When that happens, it's time to head for Miami's completely reconstructed zoo, for a peek at its newest residents -- Komodo dragons Jack and Lubier, who were born in the wild in Indonesia.

MIAMI -- David Marshall, senior mammal keeper at Metrozoo, had moved the 350-pound Bengal tiger hundreds of times before.The ritual involved layers of security -- warning signs, holding cages, guillotine gates, pin locks, safety keys.A keeper never, ever opened that last eight-foot concrete door leading to the tiger viewing area until he had followed all the steps. After all, Lucknow, the 10-year-old full grown tiger, was as ferocious as any animal at the zoo.But for some reason, Mr. Marshall -- a zoo keeper with about 20 years' experience -- did open that door yesterday morning about 7:30, before the zoo opened to the public.
