We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo

This month Becky’s Squares are focusing on odd things – you can interpret this any way you want so I am going to take you all to the zoo this month. San Diego Zoo to be precise and the photos featured will be either odd looking animals, animals with odd names, odd facts or slightly odd photos. I hope you’ll enjoy my selection.

Day 26

The four types of tapir are most closely related to horses and rhinos, since they have an odd number of toes (four toes on each front foot, three on each back foot). Their eyes and ears are small, and the body is teardrop shaped. The tapir’s nose and upper lip combine into a flexible snout like an elephant’s trunk. It can be used as a snorkel when the tapir is underwater and as an effective tool to detect odours wafting through the dense forest.

Only two more days left to join in with the ODD SQUARES month with Becky and the Square gang, so hurry up and get your post(s) in; the only rule is that the main photo MUST be a square – that is four equal sides! You have been warned 😉

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

      1. The blue coming and going here. Even a little bit of rain. Normal service resumed tomorrow. Meanwhile a very nice day of walking and lunching. Just for a change!

      1. I had both, lucky me! But I always wanted a Massey Ferguson tractor but never had the 10shillings needed….

  1. Tapirs have always been one of my fvourite animals, and I will look for them when visiting any zoo. The babies are so cute!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  2. This one’s foot looks like a piece of lego. I don’t know i’d have known what it was if you hadn’t said. Sweet, though.
