TBZ Tapirs

From Sharon . . .

Everyone at TBZ is keeping their fingers crossed about our two tapirs, Ceibo and Navidad, living happily together and having a family.

Thanks to help from British Forces Belize and MoonRacer Farm in Cayo, we were able to extend the tapir area, providing the two endangered "Mountain Cows", their own private enclosure.

The Central American tapir is an endangered species and breeding them in captivity is high on our "wish list" of things to happen at the zoo.

They are gentle herbivores, and the Central American tapir is the National Animal of Belize.
