A new present has arrived at Port Lympne animal reserve in Kent - just in time for Christmas.

The Malayan tapir is an extremely rare, endangered species but newborn baby Nias has given hope to animal keepers. He is one of only around two thousand tapirs believed to exist in the world.

Nias is the eleventh Malayan tapir to be born at Port Lympne reserve, near Hythe, since 1989.
