Don't be alarmed by two newcomers to Shanghai Zoo in Changning District.

The pair of komodo dragons are making the zoo their home from Wednesday.

It is the first time for members of this lizard family to be seen in Shanghai. The male and female are about three years old and are 1.5 meters long.

The zoo has prepared an area simulating their living environment in the wild and they feed off chicken, beef and rats.
