First Male Tapir Born in Ramat Gan Safari Park

A male tapir was born, Saturday at the safari park in Ramat Gan, east of Tel Aviv. It was the first male tapir born at the park.

In contrast to the birth of the tapir's sister 15 months ago, in a dangerous spot near the park's lake, Saturday's birth was in a dry area and the newborn did not need antibiotics. The lake has also been drained to reduce danger to him.
