Parting Shot -- 1.18.13

After 234-240 days incubated at 84 degrees, the Komodo Dragon baby emerges from its shell at the Memphis Zoo, Thursday, in Memphis, Tenn. The babies must "pip" to start breathing the air. Some embryos have a temporary egg tooth with which to crack, pip, or break the eggshell or covering. A large clutch of 16 viable Komodo Dragon eggs are starting to hatch at The Memphis Zoo. They are the first babies born to the zoo in 2013. (AP Photo/The Commercial Appeal, Karen Pulfer Focht)
