Winning Name for Baby Malayan Tapir

Announcing open voting results to name the baby Malayan tapir, the winning name chosen is “Morning”!

Malayan tapir is widely known as an endangered species, the same status as the orangutan, Asian elephant, and even the Formosan pangolin; hence the birth of any newborn is big news worldwide. The Taipei Zoo held a naming contest in July so that visitors may share the delights of her growth every step of the way. Don’t forget to come see her at the Asian Tropic Rain Forest Animal Area next time you are at the Zoo!
