IN THE WORDS OF JUAN JOSE, DIRECTOR

"We have a new one

Julieta is the 14th  tapir born here

Today morning 13 march 2007"
 

Iwonder if that is a record . 14 tapir births... they must be doing something right.

The first two pictures are of Julieta. 

The other three  pictures are of her brother, Romeo , who will be 2 years old on May 6, 2007.
