As the nation prepares to party, our animals have been making sure keepers get their goods sides on New Year’s Eve celebration snaps.

Brazilian tapir mum Meena and male Patagonian sealion Oba are two of the creatures who have been showing off their best angles for photos as we prepare to let in 2019.

And Oba and one of our African wild dogs were ready for their close-ups too!

DZG Keeper Josh Luxton, who captured the pictures, said: “Our animals are used to us snapping so many photos of them and when I took the ones of Oba and Meena it was as if they were making sure I got their best sides!”

Have fun celebrating tonight!
