Taronga Western Plains Zoo has celebrated World Tapir Day with a daily keeper talk this week. Hundreds of people across during the week came to learn about Tapirs which are the frequently misidentified species.
World Tapir Day is a great time to see one of the world's most elusive creatures.Ordinarily they're really hard to see in the wild but here in the Zoo they're actually one of the animals that enjoys interactions with keepers the most.
