In this episode of Wild Inside the National Zoo, Reptile Rejuvenation, we get to meet three kinds of cold-blooded creatures that are warmly cared for: Aldabra Tortoises, a Grand Cayman iguana, and a Komodo Dragon named Murphy. Biologist Matt Evans and Reptile Keeper Kyle Miller demonstrate how these reptiles are groomed and washed at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo.
