  1. Surprisingly, this seems to be a South American tapir - the Malayan Tapir has a white back.

    1. Yes Clarie, you are right. I too checked it in google, it was most similar to South American Tapir, since this is a zoo animal, I hope they imported it here. We have many species where Zoo authorities export and import animals. And thank you for providing the additional informations. Posted 6 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.
