Mysore Zoo - Tapir

Mysore Zoo is the most popular zoo at Mysore in India. There are various wild animals and birds at the zoo. One among them is tapir.



They are taken well care of. I witnessed the amount of food severed too them and quantity is close to what 15 people can eat .

I have never seen a tapir in the zoos here in America. I wonder why that is?

The tapir always seems to be a mix of rhino, elephant and spiny ant eater to me! A creative meltdown of animal types! Fascinating photo!

I definitely would keep my distance from this fellow.

Tapir, tapir in the park,
Do not leave us in the dark;
Tell us what you'd rather do:
Live indoors or in the zoo?

Aha, I saw it in the thumbnail shot and knew it was a tapir. Every now and then my old-lady mind does let a memory slip out, but not often.
