Brazilian Tapir, Tiquie gets a pampering
Dry skin in winter is a problem for people and Taronga Zoo’s Brazilian Tapir, ‘Tiquie’, who relies on a daily pampering to keep her skin and hair healthy.
With the mercury hovering around the 30 degree mark, our Brazilian Tapir, ‘Tiquie’ got a cooling hose-down from her keeper.
Visitors today at Taronga Zoo were delighted to see Tiquie', the 10 year old Brazilian Tapir, relishing her grooming session with Senior Exotic Mammals Keeper Renae Zammit.
