  1. Hi Bob,
    Tapir are such an amazing animal the way they twist the nose about, up and down and side to side.
    Always amusing to watch.
    Thank the lord we are getting rid of this awful weather, not soon enough.
    All the best, John

  4. A lovely series. Such an unlikely looking animal, but so beautifully adapted to make the most of its world.

  7. Great images of the Tapir, Bob. Let me give you a tip - never get yourself in a position where you are behind one - they pee horizontally backwards with a range of about 20 feet! Best wishes - - - Richard

  16. That is quite the mammal -- great portraits of something different from what I expect when I visit here -- different, but equally as interesting!
