Say cheese, Chico!

Hellooo, it’s Chico the Brazilian tapir here.

I’ve had quite a busy morning having my photograph taken for our new signs . . .  but I’m beginning to think I’m a little short sighted.

dzg_tapir_chico_1     dzg_tapir_chico_1Just look at what happened when our photographer popped inside the paddock to take a quick snap.   He’d set everything up for a nice cheesy grin but I really didn’t realise he was so close and ended up slobbering all over the lens.   It made for a nice shot of my nostrils – not the usual angle you get of an alpha male tapir!   Thankfully, here’s a much better pic below; what a handsome beast I truly am!   See you soon,  

Chico X
