day one - tapir

good eve. i have just scraped in for day one.

to start things off we have a watermelon baby - possibly the finest of them all. watermelon babies are so named for their delicious fruity taste (the striped coat is merely coincidence...)

this guy is a baby tapir but baby emus, ostriches and wild boars are also part of the gang. malayan, mountain and brazilian tapirs all have these stripy little suckers despite looking wildly different when they grow up.

ahhh cute.
