Alexandro, South American Tapir / Artis Zoo

When Ydra, a female South American Tapir at the Netherlands’ Artis Zoo, was restless and refused her food last week, zoo keepers knew it wouldn’t be long before she delivered her calf. Sure enough, on 10 April, a male calf was born and Ydra licked him clean as he lay beside her on the straw. Named Alexandro, the calf is the first offspring for Ydra and her mate Carlo — via ZooBorns
