Rumble / Funny & Cute AnimalsA baby tapir from the Chester Zoo in England comes outside with its mom. He still got all his stripes, which he will lose when he's about 6 month old.

He goes to investigate the mud puddle instead of using their nice clean pool. When he gets out of the mud puddle, all the mud is running down his legs, making the ground very slippery for him and the poor baby slips back in the puddle. He doesn't seem to mind and comes back for some more mud treatment. When he had enough he suddenly jumps out of the puddle runs like crazy along the grass and then he has fun chasing off all the magpies in his enclosure. Who would have known a tapir can run that fast?

Such a cutie. When his parents decide to go back in again he runs after them with such speed that he can&'t seem to stop himself and bumps into dad, making him slip.
