'Rare' Indonesian dragons hatched by Cambridgeshire breeder

A reptile breeder has hatched what he believes to be the first captive-bred Indonesian Sailfin Dragons in the UK.

Neil Harris, from Hardwick in Cambridgeshire, said he was "amazed" when the two females - named Betty and Wilma - arrived on New Year's Day.

"They are very rare and difficult to breed, so we're thrilled," he said.

Richard Brook, from the International Herpetological Society, said: "To the best of our knowledge these dragons have not been bred here before."

Mr Brook, treasurer of the society whose members breed and show reptiles, described the dragons as "an impressive animal".

"They are quite a rare thing in this country," he added.
