Three birthday boys in one day!

Pomegranate was on the menu today for birthday boy Ronnie, our young Brazilian tapir.


The popular youngster, who turned six today, was treated to the delicious fruit for the very special occasion.

DZG Trainee Keeper Josh Luxton, pictured above with the birthday star, said: “Ronnie really enjoyed his birthday present. He’s so well liked I’m sure he’ll be getting plenty of visitors today.”

Ronnie, who shared the fruit with mum Meena and dad Chico, also shares his birthday with two of our African wild dogs, Chicani and Bem, who are both 13 today.


The two teenagers, pictured above, got some extra special treats from keepers too.

Many happy returns boys – to all three of you!
