  1. Such a strange yet funny animal. I hear that in the wild they are almost impossible to spot. Posted 9 years ago

The South American tapir , Brazilian tapir , lowland tapir or ''anta'', is one of four species in the tapir family, along with the mountain, the Malayan, and the Baird's tapirs. It is the second-largest land mammal in South America, after the Baird's tapir.
