On the morning of December 16th, 2013 at approximately 6:00 A.M, Emergency crews gather at the San Antonio Zoo because of a fire that broke out. A zoo official confirmed that the mishap took the lives of six reptiles at the zoo. No one knows who or what started this tragic fire.

15-year-old Komodo Dragon named Scatha, who was a big hit at the zoo, was killed along with a snake and another lizard. Firefighters had to quickly move dozens of reptiles and a 300 lbs. python before any other animal got hurt. Around 100 reptiles were in the same building as the fire. This enclosure is expected to close for up to eight months due to the tragedy.

No other reported injuries were reported, but some hearts were crushed because Scatha was very loved. 7-year old- Andrew Griffin was visiting the zoo and had said “If they die I’m really kind of sad.” Altogether, six reptiles passed including two Amazon Tree Boas, two Solomon Skinks, and a Red Mountain Racer.
