A Tapir is not related to an ant eater as most people believe, they're in the odd-toed hooved animal family (perissodactyls), as are the horse and rinocerous. A tapir is a large browsing mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout. Tapirs inhabit jungle and forest regions. At La Marina we are very proud to show you the many babys born in our wildlife center.
To work with the Tapir's - why not volunteer here at the Wildlife Rescue Center La Marinia Foundation? Read about what is expected of a volunteer and what services you can expect.
