This is what a Tapir sounds like.....
A squeeky Tapir at the zoo in Antwerp, Belgium October, 2011. Sorry for the blurry video towards the end. It was cloudy and getting dark at the end of the day in which my camera doesn't perform as well. Enjoy.

Hippos at the Antwerp, Belgium Zoo 2011
I took this video of some very happy hippos at the Antwerp, Belgium zoo. The baby hippo is having fun running in and out of the water. I'm glad the baby didn't run over the ducks in their enclosure. It's a long video. Later on (after I shot this video), the hippos were called in by the zoo keepers to be washed off and fed. The animals are very well cared for and happy at this zoo. Bravo to the Anwerp zoo staff. I had fun visiting. Enjoy, and comment below.

Great Egret showing off fishing skills
I was feeding ducks when a great egret walked within 3 feet of me to go fishing for catfish. This beautiful egret followed me around the pond and positioned itself where the bread was being thrown. As soon as the catfish started eating the bread, the egret ate them. Smart bird.... Enjoy....

Purple Martin chicks at feeding time
I have a Lonestar 20 room apartment birdhouse and have 8 nesting pairs. In this video one pair has only five chicks this season. Three can be seen looking out of the cavity opening to be first for yummy Dragonfies. Clutches at my martin house are smaller this year, as the most any have are five. In years past, the martins who have been here for the past three nesting seasons had on the average, eight chicks that survived to fledge. My guess is the extended drought affected clutch sizes. Enjoy!
