Fruity treats

Nick the babirusa, along with the tapirs and peccaries, has been tucking into a few fruity treats.

Keepers have been busy stripping wild growing raspberries and blackberries from bushes around the site to give to their animal charges.


Trainee Keeper, Hannah Follows, pictured with Nick, said: “There are quite a few raspberry and blackberry bushes around the zoo, which are laden with juicy berries around this time of year.

“So instead of letting them all go to waste, as an extra special treat we pick as many as we can and give them to Nick, the tapirs and peccaries, who all love the sweet taste.”
