Two rare dragons baby were recorded hatching in the cave of Slovenia for first time, it was accessible by the underground train.
No, the “baby dragons” are not kind of fire-breathing that you are probably planning of. They are olms for the ancient species dealing with blind salamanders centuries ago were even thought for being the young versions of mythological creature, as per Saso Weldt, the biologist who studies about amphibians in Slovenia at Postojna Cave. Such olms might be really fascinating like the dragons from the fantastical lore.
“These are also believed to be well capable to live about 100 years and more, and these may even survive devoid of food for 10 years,” previously Weldt told to ABC News. “They generally have the transparent and white skin which covers the eyes, but they also don’t wish to see. These even have most incredible sense for hearing and smelling and can also detect light, electrical fields and magnetic fields.”
Although female olm also lays several eggs in lifetime, average of just 2 survive for becoming adults, said Weldt, making hatching of 2 olms with the remarkable event.
These are yet 20 feasible eggs which can hatch, as a statement from the staffers at the Postojna Cave, thereby adding and keeping “fingers crossed to get a happy and amazing ending.”
The “highly difficult period just start,” read this statement that was released after hatching of the first egg, in an aquarium. “The larva soon should get fed, since it doesn’t live in the natural atmosphere where it can feed on their own. We would even need to frequently, on regular basis, change water of the aquarium to avoid the infection. After this, there are various larvae; all of them are placed in their specific aquarium. We will even need to set up proper and little nursery for them. If everything goes well, so baby dragons will be able grow as an adults. Even though they might not be able to breathe fire, it will be suitable time for fireworks.”
