      Beautiful species! I've never heard of them before.
    • Pertinax
      Whereabouts in the Zoo are they kept?

      The pair and youngster are on currently show between the Dholes and cassowaries in the run of paddocks up past the Lemur House. There is an additional off-show male.

      This photo appears to be in one of the Malayan Tapir sheds, which has been occupied by Tufted Deer from time to time.

      Ah' they have been moved then.
    • Maguari
      Yup! ;)

      Not sure where the extra male is though; he may be in that area still, it's a lot harder to see anything down there now.

      Thanks I may be going there soon and I missed them last time(or any previous time too) though I looked for them.

      The second male is in the little yard behind the babirusa, where you can hardly see him. On Sunday he also had access to the adjoining grassy paddock, behind the gibbons, and the babirusa were shut out of it. He was easily visible when he was out there, but he kept in the rear half while I was watching him in the morning.
      I also saw the pair in the afternoon, but not the fawn. There will be a couple of so-so photos posted soon :)

      Does Twycross still have the offshow male. If so what are the plans for him as now Im guessing there are the two adults and the two offspring in the main enclosure down near the dholes? as in male female and the 2 youngsters?

      I think he's now moved to Rotterdam, but I'm not certain of that.

      That is indeed the case as far as I'm aware.
