Malayan Tapir from Khao Sok National Park


There are four species of Tapir in the world. Three of them are in the Americas and one is over here. The one that's over here is much bigger. Tapirs are odd-toed ungulates (same family as horses and rhinoceroses). Their front feet have four toes and their back feet have three toes. 

This photo was taken in Khao Sok.  For more Tapir images, see this trip report
