Random at the zoo - Part 1

Tapir Eyes

One of Malaysia's wonders in the wild. An extremely shy creature and pretty much endangered too. The tapir is quite a sight to behold. We were lucky that it was friendly enough to venture near us.


And while the big guns (100-400mm and 300mm) were shooting deers from the land beyond, I had to go search for friendly ones that will walk near me. Luckily my efforts were not futile.


And in the Christmas spirit, I give you.. the reindeer! :P

Next up: More random stuff from Zoo Negara.
