ABQ BioPark Announces Loss of Komodo Dragon

18-year-old Sunny had age-related kidney failure.

Jan. 22, 2019 - The ABQ BioPark is sad to announce the passing of its 18-year-old Komodo dragon Sunny this morning, due to age-related kidney failure. Sunny had been under medical care for the last week.

Sunny was hatched in Honolulu in 2000, and spent 10 years in the San Diego Zoo before arriving at the BioPark in October 2015. He will be sorely missed by the ABQ BioPark, especially his caretakers in the reptile department.
