Central America Animal for December: Tapir

By December 30, 2012

The tapir is one of my favorite Central America animals -- and the hardest to spot in the wild. I was super fortunate to see one when I spent the night at Costa Rica's Rainforest Adventures Atlantic last spring. She was crashing around in the undergrowth during our late dinner. I couldn't believe how close we got! Sadly, all my pictures didn't turn out too well -- so here's a photo I took of another tapir at the Belize Zoo.
