A young male Chinese water dragon has been joined Newquay’s Blue Reef Aquarium.

The Oriental dragon’s new enclosure features a waterfall and his own pool.

Displays supervisor Lara Heaney said: “The dragon was a little shy when we first introduced him to his new home but he is exploring and already has a favourite spot. He likes to sit on the top of the waterfall and dip his tail into the flowing water.”

Cornwall’s largest aquarium offers a large variety of aquatic species from tropical sharks, a loggerhead sea turtle, stingray, seahorses, a giant Pacific octopus and hundreds of tropical and freshwater fish.
