    • GillP
      It's so elusive .... I hardly ever see it.
    • Malayan Tapir
      Cheers Maguari :)

      When i took this, it was raining torrentially and it was very showy so it may just have been luck that i saw it
    • ZooLeopard
      Yep great shot Malayan tapir!

      Not many people see the UK's only Blue duiker you know :)
    • Malayan Tapir
      yeah, for the past few years, ive walked past them and never new they were there!!!
      finnaly saw them though and there my first duiker ticked off:):)

      I really do hope Colchester persevere with this species. I would love them to attempt to build a breeding group rather than just let this lone animal live out its years. It must be fairly old now though.
    • ZooLeopard
      Nope Sapphire isnt very old at all. This enclosure used to hold two elderly females but they have since passed on.
    • Goretex
      Are there any plans for them to get him a feamale partner?
    • ZooLeopard
      Sapphire is a female and I cant tell you.
