Tapir treats on Xmas menu

Our Brazilian tapirs are set for a few tasty treats today thanks to the generosity of keeper, Laura Robbins.

tapir-treats-menu-webLaura is bringing in special fruits and veg for the four-strong family group – dad Chico, mum Meena, adolescent male, Ronnie and his nine-month old sister, Tallulah.

She said: “Tapirs are my absolute favourite animals and I really spoil these guys at Christmas.

“I bring them all sorts of treats and also make sure they have lots of tickles, too!”
