Brazilian Tapir / Marwell Wildlife

A Brazilian Tapir baby named Little Ron, at only 9 days old, is now out and about in his paddock at Marwell Wildlife.  Born with a very pretty coat of pale spots and stripes on a reddish brown background, he is delighting visitors with his striking appearance. When he is about a year old he will lose his markings and develop a beautiful light brown colour, just like his mum Summer and sister Quito. He’s named Little Ron in memory of his Dad, Ronaldo, who sadly died at the park last month after an acute illness — via ZooBorns
