A baby tapir, wait, what’s a tapir?!



You may be asking yourself, what is a tapir?  A tapir is a large herbivorous animal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short prehensile snout (prehensile means it can grasp, it’s kind of like a tiny elephant trunk).  Tapirs live in the jungle in three main areas – South America, Central America, and Southeast Asia.  What a cool animal!
