A three-week-old Brazilian tapir. Brazilian tapirs are the biggest mammals in the Amazon. This guy? He’s not even king of the buttercup jungle! Yet. One day, he could weigh more than 600 pounds. The calf’s markings mimic the dappled sunlight of the forest floor, which would help him hide from jaguars and crocodilians. Y’know because you can’t get by on cute alone… Tapir numbers in the wild are very low due to poaching and habitat loss. [x]
