Elderly babirusa, Nick, can wallow in style after keepers gave his paddock a spruce-up.

The 15-year-old Balinese wild pig has been given a new sand pit and a mud wallow in which he is enjoying rolling around.

In the wild, babirusas typically spend much of the day in such wallows and dried mud and sand is also great for conditioning Nick’s skin – rather like a day at the spa!
