The calf was born on Saturday to parents Passiflora and Meir and drew much attention from visitors as it nursed from his mother, who was also born at the safari.
Zoo trainer Gali Burkovich said employees at the zoo were all very proud.
“He was very healthy, he weighs five kilos. He’s following her, he’s nursing. It makes us all very proud and hopeful that we can continue breeding these endangered animals successfully,” she said.
The successful breed came just 12 months after the proud parents gave birth to a female baby tapir named Papaya.
