    The camera is online 24 hours a day. The Tapir House is cleaned in the morning so you may see keepers working hard or visitors undertaking a keeper experience! The best time to see the Tapirs is from lunchtime onwards.

    certainly looks close to it.

    I just saw a rat running around in the straw...

    I saw the rat too - hard to keep them out of all that straw I guess.

    I've only seen the male Toby this morning.

    God makes all the littl'uns on the Ark of course ... I think they put up a barrier / partition / shield - would it be an infa-red light for night-time, shining on a white board? (the truth is usually a disappointment).

    I would guess at some kind of barrier to shut off feed.
